Question Tire Pressure Chart, Need help finding correct tire pressure.

I Have a 2003 325i. I bought a new set of Riken Raptor 205/55 R16 HR 91H M+S tires about two months ago. I'm trying to find the correct tire pressure for my tires/car. I found a tire pressure chart in my door jam but I'm not sure how to read it.

I checked the tire pressure with my digital gauge today and this is what I got:
Front Left: 28psi
Front Right: 28psi
Rear Left: 31.5
Rear Right: 28.5

I've attached a picture of the tire chart thats located in my door jam. Could someone please tell me how to read it? I mainly drive alone and I live in Southern California so I never drive in snow or extremely cold weather.

30psi front and 35psi rear according to the sticker you posted would be good for SoCal driving.

Tires do not have recommended pressures on them (only the maximum pressure), so you would use the car manufacturers recommendations.
