RS Tyre Pressures

What is the correct tyre pressures to be using on the RS. I know this label says 41psi and 35psi for the 20” wheels I’ve got but I’ve never in my life ran over 40psi on a car. I’d think the tyres were over inflated and I’d wear them incorrectly rather than a nice overall even wear. What’s you guys/gals thoughts?
I’m currently running approx 34psi all round for two people.

I have Y rated (Michelin 4S) 275 30 20" and at 36/32 the car is too sticky & steering feels heavy, whereas at 42/39 it feels too jumpy and light on tight bends at speed, so I have found that 39/36 is ideal (without passengers or luggage) for my B8 3.0 Tdi Cab which is 45 kg lighter than the B8 RS5.
Racks- I wouldn't recommend those ZZ's either as they have inner tubes..
OK, yes- definitely worth a try.
With the heavier steering I referred to that is when it is in 'Comfort mode' as I have ADS - so in 'Dynamic mode' for more spirited driving the steering becomes tighter and feels a bit heavier anyway.
