What most people will do is to lower them until you can find the best ride. What is the recommended maximum pressure it says on the tire?

Drop the pressure down 4 lbs and see how it rides, if you still don't like it drop it down 4 more.

Read this explains how.

For longevity, do the chalk test. That will show you what pressure you need for them to wear evenly.

If you don't know how to do it, there are some videos on youtube explaining.

This statement confuses me. I have never seen a recommended pressure on a tire, just a max safe pressure.

The recommended pressure should be in the door jam, on the same plate as your color code etc.

You should never ever run your tires even close to the number on the side of the tire.

Also, E rated tires will need less pressure to maintain it's shape compared to the oem tires which are much thinner in the sidewall. Something to consider since the recommended pressure is based on oem tires.
