Stock 18" wheel - tire pressure ?

I have a 2014 V6 and just installed a set of standard 18s with the stock Nero Zero 235/50/18s from a 2013 GT base that I bought. What is the pressure on the door sticker for the standard 5 spoke GT tires? The 17s were 35 but figured it might be different. Thanks for the help. Don't worry, I will never lie and say it's a GT.

I thought it was 32, which seems to be standard on pretty much everything these days . . . it should be marked on the door jam . . . amazingly enough, the tire size does not seem to matter; the recommended tire pressure for the car is always the same.

But, there is nothing magic about that number; it is just a "recommended ballpark" or you could think of it as a minimum. The "best" tire pressure depends on "best for what?" and there are a couple different tests you can do to find out what is best . . . search around on here a bit if you are interested, there are a few threads on it.

Thanks guys, 35 seemed a little high considering how the car felt. I will drop a pound or two tonight.
