Too many real life factors to tell you exactly what to run. If you want a true measurement, you'll need to do the chaulk method. (Covered in the sticky in this section labeled "What psi should I run").

The basics is draw a chaulk line across the tire, drive 100 yards straight and see where the chaulk has worn off. If its in the center, let out air. If its on the outside, add more air. Repeat until it wears evenly. (if it only wears on one side, you have an alignment issue).

35psi. But yeah, if you really want to dial it in perfect you gotta chalk test; easy, takes about 20min.

i found 35 psi too high for me. running 29-30 psi. caveat that with, i just did the chalk test yesterday, so i'm still seeing how this pressure feels on the highway.
