tire pressures

What tire pressures do you guys use in your stock tires on the street? I know that the max pressure is 44 psi, but it's not recommended to use the max psi.

I have tryed 35 / 34 / 33 / 32 around each for a week on my extreme commutes. The lower pressures were great for cornering but the ride was progressively less forgiving on eatup roads. With gas price pressure and more high speed driving than stop/go I have gone with 35 around.

Yeah, for optimal all around driving, the goat is recommended to be set at 30 psi... but you just need to consider whether you'll be doing more city or highway driving.
