Tire pressure in M&H 17/28/4.5 Front Runners

I got a set of Race Star 17's for the front back last black friday, and caught a good deal a month or so back for some M&H Radial 17/28/4.5 front runners.

It's stated on the tire not to inflate over 35psi to set the bead, but it has no max psi indicated for use on the strip.

I did some searching on the web but really couldn't find any good answers, some people stating they ran 35, some up to 50 psi.

I want to run them as high as I can at the strip, to reduce rolling resistance.

Just wondered if anyone is running these, they are a relatively new tire, been out about 6 months or so, and what max psi are you able to run with them at the strip?

Roto-Fab intake, SW 1 7/8" LT w/hi flow cats, Flowmaster outlaw exhaust, UDP, 160* stat, Circle D 3200, Moroso catch can, TCI line lock, Zex Nitrous 125 shot, 3.91 gear, Eaton True-trac, DSS 1000hp axles..... Tuned via SCTX4 by Dynosteve at RDP.
