Hi, was wanting to get an updated thread on this topic now that there are more of these out in the wild. I find the 2 door to be really sensitive with the PSI in relation to overall comfort and performance. What have y'all settled on? What did you notice on highway speeds?

2018 2-door Rubicon 2.0 with 37 x 13.5 load rating E Firestone Destination MT2's--Low 30's cold is where I am keeping them, although as the cold came on this winter, pressure dropped into the high 20's, and the Jeep handled perhaps better there...but with the low tire warning being an issue (I do not use a Tazer). I prefer not to exceed 35-36 psi warm. Handling is steady at highway speeds with one finger, road noise acceptable, tracks true and a comfortable ride (for a Jeep with oversize mud tires).

I run my stock KO2’s at 32psi. I’ve never experienced the often mentioned steering issue; mine tracks as I’d expect it to, and I can drive with one finger on the wheel on the highway.

Thanks, I keep coming back to 32 but the transmission seems to like 34.
