I believe that my Michelins say do not exceed 44 PSI. On many cars that are brought over on ships from Japan they pump them to 60 PSI for the trip and then adjust them at the dealership; it is kind of a trade secret, but 30 days on a ship with normal air can cause flat spots in in our fine Steel belted radials. I have a friend who bought a Toyota and they forgot to adjust, and only when he complained of the hard ride did they adjust them. No blowouts; never hear of problems; tires can take a beating; think slaloming; when I did that, they check your wheel beariings, air your 32 PSI tires to 40 and require a helmet; did it a lot in my youth; and once after a run where I spun out I checked the air in that hot tire; 52PSI,,,,never saw blowouts....just a thought....
