Default Tire pressure

Ok, I'm alittle old school. I remember when tires took 28-30 lbs of pressure. The door sticker is fine for OEM, but how about aftermarket low profile plus sizing, like 50, 45, 40, or 35 series. I've heard pressure like 44 lbs ? How can I tell the correct pressure for 225-40/18 ?

Seems to me lower profile = higher pressure.
I would think 44 PSI for a 40 series is about right.

Use the tire manufacturer's suggested pressure.
