Factory tire pressure?

I just acquired a 1996 Probe SE 2L Automatic. The factory sticker for the tire pressure on the driver door is gone. Can someone tell me what the factory recommended tire pressure is for this model?

Thanks in advance.....

If you can't find it the tire mfg. puts recommended pressures on the tire.

If you don't have the glove box manual, you can download one in PDF format from this Ford site (https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp). The tire pressures should be listed in there, eh.

Edit: Oops, maybe not - I just checked the owner's handbook for the '96 Escorts and it just says to check the sticker on the door pillar. That's strange - I've never seen an owner's handbook without tire pressures before. I'm in the UK though.

That's why I wanted someone to check their door sticker for me. Tire pressure isn't in the manual and auto manufactures put their own recommended pressures on the door label that is specific to make and model of the car. Tire manufactures just put the max that the tire can be inflated to.
