Winter Tire Inflation Pressure

Just a quick question. I recently bought a winter set up. Blizzak LM 25.
225/40 18's all around. What pressure should I be running? I guessed 38, since my front OEM 225/40 18 RFT's ran that. Is that right? Thanks for any help.

I used to ran 38 all 4 tires, gives you that hard tire wall feeling with higher psi.

Cool. Thanks. Anyone know if you can run the stock 255/35 that came on the E90 ZSP on 8 inch wheels, or do you need the 8.5. I really like the look of the new wheels I got, but they are square at 8"
