Question: Tire pressure in cold weather?

Hi guys/gals. Havent been on in a while...

What is the optimum tire pressure, while on hard surface in the dead of winter. The dealership rotated my tires and aired them up. Now my rig rides pretty rough.

Sahara 4dr, Jeep Green
Loaded...the Jeep not me.

I believe 32 lbs......should say on the sticker in your driver door jamb....if you run them much below 30lbs, your TPMS light on the dash will come on....
