They're brand new...It looks like the sides bulge out as if there isn't enough air compared to the stock tires. Looks like they are aired down to go off road. Doesn't the bigger the tire the less air pressure it takes to hold the same weight?
You can't tell by looking at a tire if it is properly inflated.
Checking proper tire inflation is rather simple and requires some chalk or a utility crayon.
Make a mark all the way across each tire.
Drive the Jeep for a short distance, a straight line is best.
Note the wear pattern in the chalk. If there is chalk left at the edge the tire is over inflated. Chalk left in the center means it's under-inflated. A clean pattern indicates the pressure is just right. Make a note of the pressure for future reference. This procedure would need to be performed again of different size or style tires are added.
