I assume the question is what PSI do you run in your tires???

I run 35psi all year round.

Yeah I would say 35psi is a good pressure.

Peter, are your tires 215s or 205s?

On mine the gas door says 35Psi, I run that in the winter and 40 in the summer because I like the ride a little harder.

what am saying is that on the sidewall on my tires it says 35 PSI MAX so basically what am asking is that since the MAX pressure you can pump them to 35 PSI whats a safe PSI to pump too ok so is it safe to pump to Cold 35 PSI even though the PSI limit is 35 MAX on the tires?

shelia my tires are 215s not the stock 205s

If the tire sidewall max pressure is 35 psi, then that's the most you can safely run (cold psi of course). Most tires I've seen have max inflation pressures of 40 psi or more, so 35 psi is a pretty low max inflation. What kind of tires are these?

Peter, you'll be fine with 35 psi cold all the way around.

My car says to run 31 psi all around, so that's what I do. Careful with running constant pressures higher than what the manufacturer recommends, as could end up with the tire center treads wearing sooner than the sides. For slow leaks, you can usually go quite a bit higher than max pressure to get you home, but wouldn't make a habbit of it.
