While it is possible to "break" a sidewall under extreem conditions (impact fro example) I don't think that is what you are feeling. I believe what you feel is your exceeding the cornering capability of your tires. On some tires there is a less than smooth transition from ever increasing cornering force to decreasing cornering force as the slip angle increases. You will almost certainly find increased cornering capability if you increase the inflation to 35 you may also feel a bigger sudden feel of loss of grip.

My advise is that you shouldn't be pushing your tires that hard on the street. That's not responsible driving. Save it for the track.
