Tire Pressure

What are the optimal tire pressures for a 330xi with sports package (run flat tires). Would 35 PSI be alright on all four tires?

then 35 front would be on the high side and 35 rear would be on the low side, but they are both acceptible numbers, so most likely it would be ok. also check the load ratings, it you don't carry much cargo, the tire pressure can be dropped for example, but it should still be kept within that range. if it was me, (like i do on my own car) just split the two, maybe 33 front, 38 rear for example....
