If it was mine it would be 35PSI (rear) 36PSI (front) but thats the high speed setting 225/40/18

Most important is you have a calibrated/accurate pressure guage, i use a Michelin compressor that is +/-1PSI, the best i could find

Did you use the compressor that comes with the car?

Attach the air hose to the tyre valve, and then plug the compressor into the cigarette lighter and switch the ignition to I.

Use the on/off switch on the compressor to inflate the tyres to the correct pressure on the gauge.
