Recommended PSI?

Ok so i should probably figure this out soon since I already got my new wheels and tires. What would the recommended PSI be for 275(&285)/35-18 wheels with Sumimoto HTR-Z II Tires? I can't seem to find it. Oh, and they are filled with Nitrogen so i don't have to worry about changing PSI.

32 or so. Nitrogen is just a waste of money. My compressor puts in plenty of N.

To get the full benefit of nitrogen you would have to drain and fill the tires with nitrogen to get all the oxygen out. I just set mine at 36 and haven't noticed any unusual wear yet.

The nitrogen molecules are bigger not allowing it to pass through the side wall and its more stable so it wont change the psi as your tiers hear up while driving like regular compressed air does so if you want to just have to fill it once and not have to worry about then go with nitrogen

I keep hearing this but have never seen proof. Thinking about having it done on the dd focus. I have 60k miles of records with these tires and normal air.
