I need to pump air in my tires about every 1.5 months.

Someone told me this is too often.

How often did everyone put air in their OEM tires?

I am losing about 2 psi during the 1.5 months. About 600 miles of driving.

This is normal. That is why they tell you check the pressure at least once a month. If there was a leak it would drop quicker than 2 psi/1.5 months.

You don't say where you live; with Winter coming on in the US, perhaps it's just a normal decrease in pressure with lower temperatures?

e.g. 36 PSI set at 20°C will decline to 32 PSI at -10°C

I last had to pump my tyres when it was less than 10°C (Travelling in Southern Australia), and 4 months later, it's 30°C (Northern Australia), and I haven't had to add any air, so the hotter climate is compensating for any minor leaks.
