    i usually put mine at 2 psi less than the max...so in your case you should put it to 40-42psi

    you typically don't inflate a tire based on what the tire says. look on the inside of the door jam it will give you tire pressure specs for the front and rear tires. I usually keep mine ast about 32PSI

    but doing that is for stock tires isnt it? or at least stock size tires. i set them to 42.

    reason im asking is because when i was driving today, my front driverside tire was making noise. like it was flat, but not completely. pulled over, and it was at 27psi.
