Angry Obtaining tire pressure information

Goddamn it, why is it *so* difficult to get tyre pressure informations? I need to choose a tire that can take 51 PSI - for FE reasons, but also because my car manual also specifies a 49 PSI figure for my car. But no-one is willing to give me pressure figures - I just got off the phone from a tyre shop and they refused to quote figures, just palming me off with "40 PSI" and "You shouldn't be going over this anyway" despite me telling them that's exactly what the car manual says. Why is no-one telling me this information - it's just wasting my time and it has taken me several weeks to try and choose a damn tire, and I'm nowhere near my final decision due to the lack of information.

Sorry, I just needed to let off steam.


My aim: to achieve 3L/100km.
Best tank @ 65mph: 864.2 miles 69.36MPGus 3.4l/100km
