Blizzak tire pressure?

Can someone at TireRack tell me the tire pressure I should use for my Blizzaks? (2004 BMW 330Ci, Sport pkg.) I'm using 35psi on all 4 now. I came to this pressure just by how they felt to me. I've had no problems with winter handling at all with these tires at this pressure. I want to make them last as long as possible by using proper inflation.

Ok I searched!

And nobody has the right answer. My car has 18x8@ 32psi front summer pkg. and 18x8.5 @38 rear. A completly different setup than my Blizzak pkg. The consensus seems to be 32-35psi. I'd like to know what the experts at TireRack (where I bought mine) or Bridgstone or BMW for that matter have to say about this. There has to be an optimum pressure to use. This info should be readily available. What's up TireRack?

Not many folks are up here answering questions on Sunday evenings.

Winter tires are to use the same psi as summer or all season tires but only up to the sidewall max psi.
