DD tire pressure question Yoko ADV08

What pressure do you daily driver guys use in your ADV08's?

Yokohama recommended to me for full load on public roads:
Front: 265/30 R19 -> 42 PSI (3.1 Bar)
Rear: 295/30 R19 -> 45 PSI (2.9 Bar)

On Track:
Front: 265/30 R19 -> 36 PSI (2.5 Bar)
Rear: 295/30 R19 -> 39 PSI (2.7 Bar)

No recommendation for part load from Yokohama! I drive mostly alone or with one passenger.

Thanks!

Those pressures don't make sense to me. I think you will want approximately 38 all around for both purposes, measured at operating temperature.

38 PSI is the pressure i have now in my P Zero 245/265 R19.
I'm also a little surprised about the YOKO recommendation.

These look like hot pressure recommendations to me. I use 36 cold in the city and 37 hot on track with nice tire wear but could use more comfort in the city.
