Default Tire Pressure

I have 37" tires and the sticker specific to the after market tires says to cold fill to 35 PSI. It has been very cold here with temps around zero. Cold the TPS says the tire pressures are right at 35 PSI. After driving for a while and the tires warm up TPS readings are around 40 PSI. I am not running on over inflated tires am I?

No that's totally normal. As you drive the tires heat up and it increases your tire pressure. If you're filling it up to 35 when cold you're good to go!

Don't worry too much about the hot pressure. As long as you have the pressure correct for "Cold Inflation" you should be good to go. There is no safety hazard in the way you are doing it. It wouldn't hurt to watch the contact patch on the treads to see if the whole tread is making contact with the road. It could make a difference in the long term wear of the tires.
