It will cause a stiffer ride and probably a little more road noise, but it shouldn't affect tire wear. I run somewhere around 43 PSI on my Acura and appreciate what it has done for handling, but dislike the extra noise. Just experiment and see what is a good compromise for you. The higher the pressure, the better the MPG.
