proper tire pressure?

so i recently acquired a set of gsr blades with falken tires 195/55/15 for my integra. the tires say to fill them to 51 psi but it says in my door jam to fill to 29psi for stock (obviously). usually i just follow what the tire says but i have one buddy tell me to fill em to what the car says, another buddy says around 35psi and i usually just follow what the tire says.

what do you guys think

Fill in 40psi, then you wouldn't have a problem.

Fill it to what the door jam says. The tire usually states the maximum safe pressure the tire can handle, not the recommended.

+1.

Fill it to what your door jamb says if you're running any oem sizes. My door jamb specifies the pressure to fill to for various oem tire sizes (Of course to make it difficult, in Japanese, and in bar). The tire side wall indicates the maximum tire pressure.

I've had dumbass customers at my shop fill their tires to pressures as high as 70psi when I do routine pressure checks during service. Either they want their tires to "look" round, or they're fucking retarded. I even had one guy who bitched at our advisors because we didn't fill his tires to 60psi, well above what was marked on the tires.

Either fill them to what's marked on the door jamb, or generally 32 for passenger cars, and 35 for SUV's, trucks, and minivans.

I did my apprenticeship at a full service tire shop and would occassionally see small DD's with tires over 50psi. Every time I asked why the pressure was so high I got the same answer: better fuel economy.


After the first few, I stopped bothering to explain. Lawls were always had when they'd come in to replace them with bald centers. Save $80 in gas <less traction, poor handling, bad braking, $500 tires.

edit: I do however, install tall, narrow tires and pump them up to like 60psi for Aircare though.
