Proper Air Pressure for GY Duratrac's

I posted this on the Wheels and Tires Thread and got no replies and only 21 views!
I'm running Good Year Duratrac's 285 75 16 and was hoping to get some help on what pressure I should have in my tires. If it matters, 2 door JK Sport.

Chalk test it, that's the best way to figure it out.

Even at optimal pressure you may not get the chalk to rub off on the outer edges depending on wheel width, etc. It should still give you a pretty good idea of how much pressure will allow the most tire possible touching pavement without being under inflated

I run mine at 28lbs based on tests. I'm at 8000ft up in the mountins though so I recheck and adjust when going down to flat land.
