I'm not sure but I think ...
The pressure printed on the tire sidewall is the manufacturers recommended MAXIMUM pressure for that tire. It is by no means the pressure that you should inflate the tires to for normal use. The OEM of the car gives a recommendation for tire pressure. It is usually located on one of the door jambs, the glove box lid, or the owner's manual. This pressure takes into account the weight of the vehicle plus occupants and is specific for the stated tire size. If you change the tires on your car, you're left to your own as for figuring out what to inflate them to. Then it's up to you to play with different inflations until you decide what's right.
