Follow the door placard. Max is just that Max not what you should run.

Tire Air Pressure

I air at 36 lbs cold and use an Aircomp 3" 270* sweep tire gauge. It is really accurate and easy to air at 1/2 lb setings. When I go from 5,000 feet MSL here in CO mountains to a state less than 1000 feet I'll inflate to 38 pounds ahead of time otherwise I'll be low when I get to the destination. I have almost 20K on my factory Pirellis and they look like I'll get another 5K before changing. Then I'm going with Continnental Extreme DWS all season tires warranteed for 50K miles. Those tires I can rotate side to side.

While the door sticker says 36 pounds for each tire, it might not be the optimal for balance (perhaps unless the car is bone stock, and even then perhaps tire tread depth/compound might play a role). Here's some old school but still relevant information (even has an IROC ):

That is some pretty cool stuff. I know for optimum traction in a competition setting that each pound of air is critical, but on a practicality scale I give this a score of 2. One thing you could do fairly easy is checking the sidewall roll over. The easiest advice was the art of listening to your tires.
