Tire Pressure for Performance vs Ride

Hi, I have Yokohama AVS ES100 215/50/WR17 tires. According to factory recommendation the tires requires 32 psi front and 30 psi rear. So I assume the stock recommendation is more geared towards ride than performance.

I have tried 32-35 psi front and 29-32 psi rear but I wasn't sure about the performance part since I hardly push the car to the edge. But the higher tire pressure DOES produce more road noise and ride stiffness.

So for people with Yokohama AVS ES100 tires, what is your tire pressure and performance vs ride quality?

What is good for ride on rough roads? Likewise what is good if you are going to autocross?

Someone told me running 5 extra PSI all tires above manufacturer specs is ok. I have 37front and 35 rear. I can definitely tell it handles a little better with my stock tires turanza.

I run 40 in the back and 36 in the front. It sure handles better with the turanzas.
