What PSI do you run on your tires?

I will be getting new tires for my Jeep so I am wondering what PSI most people go for here without problems.

I run at 40PSI, but marked 41-45PSI, because I didn't want to be considered in the standard pressure group. Who knows, maybe I'll play with 41 to 43PSI.... maybe NOT with late fall & winter coming.....maybe...... ya know?

I use 2.8-3.0 bar. What's that, 40-ish PSI?

Also, depending what tires i have at the moment. Some tires are soft&squishy even at 3.5bar, some are fine at 2.5bar

I cranked it up to max on my Prius shortly after I got it. Ran it like that for a few months but it seemed to cause the headlights to die young so I let them back down to about 40.

Then I replaced most of the lamps with LED and pushed the pressures back up to 51.

I don't know what the differences are between the truck's lamps and the Prius', it doesn't seem to affect them at all. It runs at 45. Any higher, though, and even I start to become unhappy with how the truck rides.

About 3 bar (we have metric air over here) that's a low 40's PSI.
More causes resonances and sounds which make long distance travel tiresome, and afaict hardly helps economy.

Seems like 40 is a good starting point, and a lot of you guys go a lot higher with no issues. Thanks
