If they're all season Pirelli's I'd only go around 34 to start and see if the tires aren't rolling on the sidewalls then be happy with it. If they are go up another pound or so but it doesn't take much to get them really squealing and sliding.
If they're good summer tires I'd basically start the same but you could head up to around 36 and be pretty happy.
REMEMBER THERE WILL BE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN TRACTION AFTER a few laps so take it easy for the first few. you don't wanna be the guy off the course or against a guard rail.
