It'd be easier to tell from a picture of exactly what kind of wear is on the edges of the tire. Both sides or just one side?

Generally speaking, stick with the recommended pressure listed on the door jam/manual. Nothing wrong with inflating the tires a bit, but keep in mind too much and you'll have excessive wear in the center of tread due to over-inflation.
