Of course if the tire is not OEM then other variables come into play as well. This is probably why the pressure is listed as a maximum pressure on the tire. Now what...we all go out and get pyrometers??
Thanks....tire store just checked 'em for me today and they don't see any signs of damage or excess wear after 5000 miles at 23lbs,. under max inflation so I'm gonna keep em right there at 82 lbs. like the sticker says.
