The pressures on the door jamb are for the best performance and handling of that vehicle with OE size and style tires.
Personally, I run my Tahoe's at 65psi (load range D) in the rear and 50 in the front. Come winter time, I reverse that when I have the plow on.
NEVER inflate a tire past the MAXIMUM PSI # on the side wall. Most of your passenger car (P series) tires are up to 44psi, and light truck (LT series) tires from 45psi in a Load range C, up to 80psi in a load range E tire.
