Continental ContiSportContact 2 "Recomended Tire Pressure"

I can't find the recomended pressure for my tires. The specs say Max Pressure 51psi, but I don't think that's what I should fill it with. I have the

Continental ContiSportContact 2

225 40 ZR19 in the front
255 35 ZR19 in the back.

Anyone with these tires that could let me know??? I've got em at 35 for now.

Check (1) the front edge of the 'B' pillar beside the driver's seat and (2) your owners' manual for recommended tire pressures at various loads. These recommendations are adequate unless you plan to track the car. If you do use the car in a driveing school, you will want to experiment with pressures to provide more neutral handling as your skill level improves. Your instructor can help with this.
