If you run 32 psi on 22's you run the chance to damage your rims. Crank them up to 38-40 psi and rotate them frequently.

Thanks for the info. I spoke to TireRack and they mention to use about 37-38 psi for the 22s. I will go with 38 psi all the way around. Thanks a lot.

whoa, ppl going low as 32, i remember asking tirerack guys and they told me 40psi because the max on my tires are 50psi, so is this wrong or correct...i just installed 305/30/22's on the rear, so any suggestions on the air pressure for those and the max says 50psi also on these tires?

Sorry, late to the party on this one. Tire reaches its maximum load carrying capacity at 36 PSI, so anything above that is just tuning for ride comfort. I'd start at factory PSI, and wet down a section of pavement and drive through it on to dry pavement. Look at the contact patch for a (very) rough idea of how close you are.
