Tire Pressue - 19" Goodyear LS2 RFT

I just installed some 19" 351 M wheels with Goodyear LS2 RFT's. I looked on the tires and all I saw was "max psi 50lbs". That seems high to me, I was thinking 32 to 35 psi. I checked the pressure in the tires and they were in the 40 to 42lbs range each. They were OEM takeoffs from a new 5 series.

What is the correct tire pressure for that tire?

NEVER use the psi on the tire sidewall. That is the maximum that the tire can stand and not the everyday pressure.
The same tire will need different pressures on different cars.
As noted, the correct pressure for the car should be on the drivers door frame and in the manual.
On my 535 the front is 35, rear 39; 18" runflats.

35psi square worked for me.

Bottom line is whatever works for you.
