EDIT: Street Pressures
For many years 2lbs under the listed max, 40R/34F. Let the softer compound do the work, and keep the tire carcass from flexing too much to get good mileage out of a set. Though, on this last set of M7's in the winter I ran 38R/32F just to warm the temps up on cold days in the mountains. Might keep this slightly lower pressure into the summer and see if I like the feel better. Also, running Slick mode or User mode with the engine set to slick seems to eat tires (1/4 less life) for no appreciable increase in speed, at least on the street. Race mode seems much better at preserving tires while not actually slowing you down.
I don't race or do track days (yet), so I can't vouch for any of that but I can say proper street (not track on the street) pressures are key to not just destroying your tires, especially the rear.
