Curious question though, what is max inflation tire rating many of you have on your tires? For me it is 44 psi max, and I try to stay around 41.
I did a Cheesy-Lube a while back. It said 32 PSI on the receipt, but when I checked, they had left it at my original PSI.

I specifically picked my tires for their high 51 PSI rating, and that's what I keep 'em at :
