I think the tire shop put mine at 33 psi. So I just try to keep it at that.

I think my manual says like 35. But my tires say 44 max...so I try to stay at 40-44. I never knew if that was too high..but I haven't had problems. Seems like 32 would be way too low for my tires.

I run mine at max rated on tire! Therefore 44 PSI. I use the car for mostly hiway & liked the stiff ride for cornering at 140 Km/Hr PLUS!

I like to run the front tires below 33 because they grab nice and quick on the road when needs be.
