Do the chalk test.

Draw a chalk line across the treads...Drive a couple 100 feet...See where the chalk is worn away. If it's even-Good pressure. If the middle is worn and the sides are still chalky...Too much pressure. If the sides are worn and the middle is chalky...Too little pressure. Get even wear on all 4 tires and then adjust from there for ride/mpgs if you want.

I've only had mine a week and I'm still playing with where I like the tire pressure, but currently I'm running 34 front, 32 rear. Previous owner ran 27 all the way around. I left them there and got to the house and aired them up. It felt like I was riding on 4 mushy marshmallows.
