What Patagonia M/T Street Pressure?

I was on KM2's for the past 7 years at 26 PSI for the street on a 4000lb Jeep. Wear was even and the ride was good. Last week I got a set of Patagonia M/T, 35x12.5R/15. The Milestar web site says inflate to make the tread flat on the pavement for the street. I'm at 22 PSI and have about 2/3 of the full tread width in contact with the pavement.

I don't recall the max load and max pressure of the KM2's, but on the Patagonias it's 2580 lbs at 35 PSI. That's a lot of load ability at a low'ish max pressure, so maybe 20-22 PSI on the street at 1000 lbs per corner is ok(?). I'd appreciate any thoughts on this, especially for other Patagonia M/T Jeepers.

Wow, 134 views and no comment. I thought these tires were more popular. I guess I'm on my own.

Ok, for completeness, in case someone else wants to know in 10 years....
I tested street pressure of 26, 24, 22, 20 PSI. The higher was harsh, the lower too squishy, so I landed on 23 PSI. This goes along with a YT video I saw where a JKL guy was running 25 on the same tires. Off-road, airing down to 8 PSI worked great on some local test rocks. I tested being aired down on pavement at 40 MPH for a half mile on a curvy mountain road was also less squirrelly than the old KM2's at that pressure.
