What is the right Tire pressure?

I replaced my factory conti tires after 2years of driving. I usually keep my front at 33psi and rear at 35psi. I don't drag race or take my car out burning my tires or anything, but just the regular highway usuage.

Not just my conti tires were worn, they were worn out more from the inside. My alignment seems fine.

After buying new tires (Rear-PS2 Pilot and Front-Pirelli Nero M+S), I noticed my conti had the same tire wear. Is this a tire pressure issue, alignment, or balance issue? What tire pressure is recommended?

My car BMW 2002, 330i Sport.

Your tires are still going to wear, it's just part of having a BMW, BMWs have negative differentials or camber or something like that, which causes tires to wear faster.
