And secondly, it's 2019, not 1989: I haven't seen a Max Cold PSI of 35 stamped on a passenger tire since nearly back to then. Since the '90s, 44 and 51psi max cold appear on every pax tire I've had the pleasure of kneeling before.

Are you suggesting that those current max cold stampings might lack some validity?
