Tire Pressure Question.. for 19s

Hey Guys

I am going to upgrade to 19s, just wondering what tire pressure do others use on their 19s

I was running 225/40/18 in front and 255/35/18 in back with 33psi and 36psi factory spec

I will be upgrading to 235/35/19 and 265/30/19, should the pressure be the same as factory spec?

Any input welcome..

Tks

I run 35 front and 38 back to give extra protection. But like Gary always says, high psi's have a higher tendency of wear on the center of the tire.

Tks guys, I am mountin' NT555 on the rims..

WarSong...did you talk to Nitto directly? and they recommended 42 and 41?
Is that PSI for 330 coupe only?

Tks
