Go by what is indicated on the sidewall of the tire. Keep in mind, the max tire pressure is indicated for supporting the max weight (also indicated). If you will not be loading the bike with max weight, then reduce the pressure as you will not need that much pressure and only the very center will wear much faster than the rest.
My rear tire max is 41psi, I usually run it at around 34/35 when I ride alone (pretty much 99% of the time). I followed this same guideline with my OEM Dunlop (which are supposedly known to offer lower miles) and was able to get 10K before I changed it. It still had more life left in it, but I have a few big trips coming up, so I wanted to change it before that, and wear it in a little.
