Tire pressure from factory on new GT Mustang...37 psi..?

Folks, I checked the oil level when I picked up the Mustang a couple of weeks ago but I have not checked the tire pressure until today. Since I lost a tire to a road hazard and got the new one to 32 psi I then checked the others and they are riding at 36 to 38 psi....? This is cold check in the garage.... I thought they should be about 32 all the way around....? Anybody experience this and what pressure do you run....? I can see going to 34 psi for milage maybe but 36-38 seemed way too high and I dropped them a bit. Regards

Grabber Blue 2012 GT Mustang, 6 spd manual, basic model 300A, no options, charcoal black interior. On order 04/21/11. VIN received 05/26/11. Build date 06/08/11, delivered to dealer 06/21/11. Picked up 6/29 after black stripes installed by dealer. Roush axle backs installed.... Added OEM strut tower brace..... On the road......!

My car was delivered with the tire pressure at 50 psi.

I checked the next morning so that was the cold tire pressure.

I keep mine at 32 most of the time. I've played around with a bunch of tire pressures due to a vibration problem. They don't seem to make much of a difference fuel economy wise till you get over 35 or under 28.

Hey, consider yourself lucky that they had any air in them at all...

Dealer prep is supposed to take care of stuff like this...
