Lincoln recommended tire pressure?

I can't find a number on the tire, except the maximum pressure, and
there is no sticker on the door pillar, or anywhere else I can see...

Michelin XSE P225/60R17
'04 Lincoln Towncar, pretty normal driving, no excess loads.

So what's the consensus on tire inflation pressure?

Maximum pressure. At that pressure, the car will be most fuel efficient and
tire wear will be minimized.

Look on the passenger side back door or jamb. The size & inflation
chart is over there...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

That was helpful. According to Ford, the stickers are supposed to be
permanently affixed to the car in one of three places: on the door, on the
pillar, or in the glove box.

Sorry, I was wrong. I misread your post.

Please look in your owner's manual, in the glove comparment where there may
be a sticker or on your door sticker.

"Petey the Wonder Dog" will need your full legal address & particulars
to furnish to his attorney.

It's a balance. Keep in mind higher pressure = more noise, slight
reduction in maximum adhesion. Lower pressure = more sidewall
deformation and handling that's not quite as "sharp". Plus slightly
accelerated tire wear.

what do you want to do with the car? Highways or pothole riddled city
streets?

Far as I can tell, someone wrote:

None of the doors or pillars or jams have inflation stickers.

There are child safety lock stickers, side airbag stickers and bar code
stickers. No inflation stickers.

Inside the glove box is only fuzzy fabric. No stickers.

The owners manual says to use the tire manufacturers recommendation.
No help.

I was hoping some one would know the number.

Many shops default to 32 psi for most cars.

Stickers tend to range from 26-32 for the tires that the vehicle came
with. Does it have the exact same tire the car was sold with?
