I usually stay about 35psi or 5-10 psi below max pressure. My Nitto NT05R's are at 32 but at the track they get about 17psi. To much or to little air will both wear the tires out faster. Less pressure=better launch, high psi=better mpg. But there's a balance for both.

not trying to be a smart-ass but doesnt the air pressure depend on the maximum rated tire pressure of the tire not the rim? Also everyone has given you their riding tire pressure that they run which is fine if you are looking for a ride like theirs but only if you have the same dimentions and weight on the tires. I am saying this cause ive noticed that a 225-60-15 gatorback rides differently then the same size michelin xvt with the same air pressure.
Also i think it would depend more on your driving and conditions and comfort. I mean, I would not run the same tp in NJ in the winter that I would run in Fl in the summer
just my two cents
Sorry for the soap box Im quite anal about tire pressure, I have a son that im constantly on his ass about tire pressures. I know most of you are aware of the deaths of the Florida teen-ager in the back of the pick-up truck. That was due in part to low tire pressure and inexperience behind the wheel

An underinflated tire will wear on the edges, and an overinflated tire will wear in the center.

I'd start with the air pressure recommended on the door panel or in the glove box for the car or truck.
