Oggy,

With a lowered air pressure you run the risk of developing "under inflation wear". Besides a 4 pound difference doesn't make all that much of a difference. In refernce to the other gentleman that replyed to you submission (1976 AMC) should run 35 psi due the weight of his vehicle. Also if you drove the the air pump then checked your air pressure, that means you only have 27 psi i your tires. When you drive on your tires they heat up which means the air inside heats up to and expands. That is why on the side of the tire where it list the air pressure it says "35 psi cold inflation".
