Tire Pressure Question

Ok so I just installed MSR rims with nexen 5000 tires on my 2004 passat. The wheels are 18 inch and tires are 225 40 18. I was wondering if I should follow the manufactures air pressure recomendation listed on the door? I checked the tire pressure and all are at 34 psi. The manufacturer is 44 on back and 35 on front....Now the sidewall calls for 44max pressure, can someone give me soume sound advice.?

New thread next time. 44psi max pressure is just that, MAXIMUM pressure. The gas cap also is showing for 15-16" tires as well. I'd keep things at 34 psi and see how you like the ride. Watch the tires for excessive wear on the outside edges. You may need to inflate up to 36psi or so to keep them even, but YMMV.

Alright thanks for the quick reply, I'll start a new thread next time just wasn't sure sense it was already discussed here and this is where search brought me.
