Trying to get the right tire pressure with tires rated at 1640 pounds and 44 psi max. Per

suggested by the car manual.

When you buy tires, they include a Max. pressure rating. That is the maxiumum the tire can handle. I never go that high. Always stick with the manufacture recommended pressures for proper handling of the vehicle. There is usually a sticker/tag in the car, on the door frame or glove box and or the owner manual. I always keep my pressures on the high end of the recommended, so 32psi in your case.
