You are correct in referring to the label in the Drivers door jamb for recommended PSI, however the psi noted on your tires Sidewall is the "maximum" tire inflation pressure

Actually, it can vary from car to car and tire to tire. THe best way to find out what works best for YOUR car is to draw a chalk line on each tire. If the outside parts, or the center wear unevenly then you need to adjust your psi accordingly. the chalk line should wear evenly.

Makes sense, right?
