Tire pressure recommended on door sill plate?

I do not agree with those suggesting tire pressure on door plate. I use recommended pressure on tire. After all the tire is the thing holding the pressure not the car body. I usually go to the high side to obtain the best MPG.

I always heard that the max psi on the tire was for seating the bead when mounting the tire, not for normal use. 50 is the max on my tires but 35 is on the door, quite a difference, seems that the 50 would give you a rock hard ride. The door sticker psi is from the engineers for the specific vehicle to maximize ride and handling. My understanding was to never go over that value.

It showed up on my email:
"You may be right? but think about this....I would think there is a standard for all rims built to conform to all tires manufactured in the USA? Therefore the tire is telling you what it can handle. That assumes the rim manufacturer not necessarily vehicle manufacturer complied with a national standard? if there is one. Also vehicle manufacturers select rim size based on the vehicle specs and performance. The tire manufacturer is making tires based on those sizes so one would think most should conform with a safety standard? My MKC had ride comfort options so it rides well enough with that 45 lbs in the tires."

Max on the tire may be 50 but there is traditionally another psi on the tire that is recommended to be filled to.

YIKES.....The vehicle determines the tire pressure as read on the inside of the door. The tire itself is RATED for higher pressure but it should be filled to the vehicle's plaque

I have the 2019 MKC. Is there a way to calibrate what the instrument panel shows in pressure for each of the tires? I believe one of my tires shows pressure about 5 pounds too low.
