Would have been great to see the psi numbers associated with the picture you posted.
My experience happened while i was living out in Scottsdale AZ, very flat and dry. I don't recall what make tires my co-worker had but i assume they were the OEM tire make and model that his IS300 came with.
I absolutely agree with you regarding maxing out tire pressure in the tri-state area. Too many potholes and road imperfections from the constant freezing and thawing here.
I've never been led astray to used the recommended inflation pressures found in the manual. I often get very good tire life and even wear patches unless i'm late to realize an alignment problem.
