Check your tires... it has to say on it...

Tires state the max psi.
Per Bentley manual.
The front with half load is 29 psi and rear is 26 psi.
The front with max lload is 32 psi and rear is 35 psi.
I keep mine year round 31/31 PSI.

ok, cool

so 32 should be good? what does half load mean? like, half the vehicle weight capacity?

1 kPa = 0.1450377 psi
32 to 36 psi is what I've generally seen as recommendations for passenger car tires. I run my fronts at 34 and my rears at 32... they are 205/45-16's.
