another tire pressure question

I know theres alot of debate on this so I think if I can collaborate with you all I can find the best solution.

I have the factory 18inch wheels on sumi htrzII tires( front: 225/40/18, back 265/35/18) and I live in sunny california. I want best fuel economy,ride, and handling. So what would you recommend for the front and rear tire pressure?

Stunin,

Factory recommends 29 psi front / 36 psi rear. This is probably optimum for ride and handling...

Regarding fuel economy, increasing tire pressure will increase fuel economy but will lessen ride and handling characteristics.

Here's a good thread regarding such :
