I do run my tires a little over the factory recommended pressure. I would like to set it for maximum MPG as long as I don't have to run it over 40 pounds PSI. However, on my 1954 Hudson Hornet, after installing Continential radials, I had to run 40 pounds PSI or it handeled too squiraly. If tires wear out too quickly on the outside, tire pressure is too low. If it wears out more quickly on the center of the tire, pressure is too high. However, I think David's advice is better than mine if the fuel economy more than offsets premature tire wear & doesn't compromise safety.
