18" wheels owners, what tires pressure?

To all the 18" wheels owners out there ,what tires pressure are you guys running? The door jam saids 35 front and 39 rear, is anyone running higher or lower tires pressure? Also, do you think the front tires will wear differently from the back since there is 4 PSI difference.

Check the manual, there is more detailed inflation pressure info there. I run 34 front/36 rear if I recall. The numbers on the door jamb are for maximum load, more pressure than you need for normal conditions. Note that one set of numbers, the over 100 mph section, the front and rear are reversed in the English measure, they are correct in metric (should be 35 front/38 rear).

I just check the manual and it calls for the same pressure as the door jam sticker, 35 front and 39 rear.
