I own a 2001 Wrangler which came witht the Goodyear Wrangler tires. I recently replaced them with new Goodyear Wranglers. However the new one's PSI is fifty while the originals were 35 PSI. My owner's manual suggests 35 PSI. Should I keep it at the original 35 or the new 50 PSI?

I would use the tire manufacturers suggests psi

Stay with 35! 50 is way too much. You only need 50psi in them if your vehicle weighs almost as much as the max load capacity of the tire. Since your jeep is alot lighter than that 35 is fine. Too much air in the tire will result in poor tread wear.
