Company recomended pressure would the ideal figure to start with. Then on, you can increase or decrease it depending on ride comfort and tyre wear.

I fill 32psi on my GIIIs, thats bcos i do a lot of high-speed driving. Haven't experienced uneven wear so far.

company recommended pressure on the Baleno Vxi (185/65 R 14 Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 Tubeless tyres) is 25 PSI (confirmed)... someone told me they recommend increasing it to 29 on for highway only (unconfirmed).
I have also got the same (185/65 R 14 Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 Tubeless tyres) on my Baleno Lxi...done 20K till now and experienced a bit more wear in the centre compared to the sides (indicated overinflation). I always used to keep my tyre pressure around 30-31 psi...now have rediced it to 28...
hope this helps

Allow me to confirm it
@premdiv, try and get hold of any new VXi manual. The recommended pressures for 185/65 are mentioned there.
I maintain 27-28.

The tyre rating is the max the tyre should be inflated with. How much you actually inflate depends on the vehicle on which they are being used.
