I sure wouldn't put any more pressure in than what is stamped on the sidewall.

The pressure molded into to sidewall of an RV truck size tire is the MINIMUM pressure required to support the maximum rating of the tire, NOT the maximum it should ever have in it.
On a car tire it is the maximum the tire should ever have.
