F10 550i Tire Inflation

I have the sport package with 19" tires. The sticker on the door jam says 35 psi front and 38 psi rear. However the manual says 32 and 33 psi respectively. Any advice on which one I should go with for maximum tire life?

36 PSI all round, it should help with tyre life.

IMO that might be fine if he weren't running a staggered setup that comes with the Sport Package.

On my 535i sport, I run 35 F and 39 R. That's about midway between regular and high speed settings.

Unless the manual is a misprint, my manual has the same psi for over/under 100 mph. Only the full load has an increase in the psi settings.
