How much tire pressure goes into nexen tires?

I did a little searching before I posted this, but I no longer have the TPMS system and I have Nexen 225/40ZR18 tires and I'm wondering how much air goes into them?

The max load (PSI) should be on your sidewall.

But Mazda is recommended at 32 p.s.i (I think..)

1) never inflate to the max load 2) mazda recommended is for the stock size, 205/50/17

I would recommend you inflate to 35 and drive it for a little while and see what you like and adjust up or down a few psi; there's no hard and fast pressure. YOu can vary up or down a bit without any problem. It can kind of get to be a personal preference toward ride comfort and handling leveraged against even tire wear.

well if u over infalte middle tread will wear faster and you will lose alot of traction, if u underinflate your tire will bow the opposite way and wear the ouside tread, and agian lose traction. as far as psi go, i have no idea.
