I had an interesting discussion with one of my fellow  workers. He 
maintains the pressure placard in the car is for the tires  that CAME on the 
car; they were designed for that car.  He runs 40  PSI in his tires because 
that is the max. inflation given on the  tire.   Replacement tires should be 
inflated to what the tire  says, not the cars specs.  Interesting.  My '38 
Buick specs are  for lower press. tires, as are the Delorean.  My Volare' 
runs on 32  PSI all around.  I've never heard that concept before.  Any  
feedback I can pass on?  Personally, I don't buy it, and my Mech.  Eng. Dad 
iis no longer with us to ask.   

I work in the industry and can tell you that your coworker is wrong.
The tire sticker should be heeded as long as you replace your tires with  
similar size and specifications as OEM.  If you remove your 16" wheels and  put 
20's on with low-profile tires, then you are in uncharted territory and  should 
heed what the installer recommends for safety.
