How's it going everyone?

I recently purchased new tires for my summer rims. I'm running 17's and my new tires are Sumitomo HTR Z II 245/45ZR17. My old tires were Continental's 245/45R17. Anyways, my old Indy said 32 psi will do yah, but I noticed that it goes up to 51 MAX psi, which I know doesn't mean I have to put 51 psi in. I'm somewhat of an agressive driver, but not soo much with speed and such, but when I want to make a move, I make it. I drive about 40 miles a day and zero on the weekends, mostly thruway. I've checked around and everywhere I look, it says to follow the auto manufacturers recommendation, but these aren't stock rims so I'm unsure what PSI they should be at. I would like them to be comfortable, yet grip the road, but also want the tires to last awhile.

So, I'm wondering if any of you have any recommendations on what the PSI they should be at or I can try. With my old conti's at 32 psi, I felt like they grip the road a little too much so now that I have new tires on all four, I would like to try and get it somewhat where it should be without sacrifycing tire longetivity too much.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

-Dean
