For a 33x12.50 tire tire, I'd go no higher than 26-28 psi and it sounds like they may have been overinflated higher than that. Some stupid tire jocks think they're supposed to intlate a tire to the pressure molded into the sidewall but that is only the maximum allowable tire pressure to be used only when the tire is carrying its maximum designed-for weight.
I have 33x10.5 BFG all terrains and I run about 27psi and could still probably go down another pound or two if I really wanted to (my jeep is pretty light though, soft top, no back seat, no spare tire). Discount tire filled them to 36 psi
when i got my Jeep two months ago i check the air in the tires. all depending on the tires it was from 20 to 50 psi. i put them all at 35. but after reading may post i might lower it some more.
What tires do you have and why did you fill them to 35, doesn't the sticker in the drivers side door jam say 33? If you have larger than stock tires you wouldn't want to be above 33psi, you would want to be lower than that.

Reason: can't read
I have 31x10.5x15 cooper discoverer tires now. To be honest with you i wasnt sure what they realy should be set at. So i put them to 35 i might lower them to 32. i need new tires anyways so its just till i figure out what tire and rim combo i want to get.
