I think it says maximum load at this maximum pressure. I keep mine at sidewall max, you never know when I might have a load so I like to be prepared.

On the wifes Rogue it gives you the pressure per tire, she doesn't want me to touch her tires since it rides rougher and she can afford to pay to much for fuel, but not me. They air them up every 5 k miles when they change her oil for free, works for me. Light stays off. I keep the windshield clean and check the fluids and rotate the tires if one end gets 2/32nds less tread than the other end. So far haven't touched them at 35k miles. Just checked tread depth.

The maximum pressure indicated on the tire can indeed be the recommended pressure. HD truck applications are prime example of this.

Sounds like your wife is taking great care of both her tires and vehicle
