Ok door label says 32psi but the tires are inflated 35-37. What are your tires at?

20 inch tires should be at 38 cold and 40 if the vehicle has been driven. Lower them way down at the track but for normal driving use above psi

Mine are at 32/33 cold and they can go as high as 36 on a warm day
Like 19 degrees warm we got up to today? 12 right now which beats the minus 10 we had two days ago.

from TSB 22-004-06 but same principles still apply.

The tire pressure will vary with temperature by about 6.9 kPa (1 psi) for every
6.5°C (12°F). This means that when the outside temperature decreases, the tire
pressure will decrease - the customer should adjust his tire pressure for this
decrease in pressure
- please refer the customer to his vehicle owner’s manual for
information on how to properly inflate his vehicle’s tires. The tire pressure will also
increase as the vehicle is driven - this is normal and there should be no adjustment
for this increased pressure.

32 psi is the recommended cold inflation pressure. unless you're doing autocross or racing a road course, I wouldn't go higher than 35 psi cold. anything above that and you risk premature center tread wear.

Lets see.... Premature tire WEAR... does that mean we should get 700 miles out of the rear tires if we do 1/8 mile burnouts @32 psi!!!

Every time I leave my delaership they've adjusted them to 41 psi cold. No idea why. I always drop that to about 32 after I get home.

If you drop it as soon as you park your car, you are under inflating them. Make sure you're doing it when they're cold (not in direct sunlight, not freshly driven, morning temps.)

No, this is Dodge. Nitrogen is too expensive. They use cow farts instead. Far cheaper. Stinky burnouts are an unfortunate side effect.

I fill my tires with helium. It lightens them so they go faster
