Default Anything changed with Tire Pressure?

Been without a LX for a while and in the past have kept my tire pressure at 35lbs. The dealer delivered with 39lbs (cold). I bleed them down to 37lbs. Any new consensus on the best tire pressure with 1-2 people in the vehicle?

I believe the recommended pressure is 33psi in the manual.

Agreed. It is also on the placard on the drivers door frame. My dealer, in the past, always told me to do 35-36 psi cold when I picked up from service.

They ride and handle better at 33psi than higher psi IMO.

I have experimented with pressures between 32-36psi. I find that the ride and handling are best at the recommended tire pressure of 32psi.

My dealer inflated my tires to 39psi when it was cold in Chicago. Now, the tire pressure monitor reads 41psi as it got warmer.

My dealer did the same at delivery of my LX. 39psi.

Do not know if their air gage is off or it comes from the factory with 39psi of nitrogen. I have bleed it down to 35psi.
