The tire recommendation is 60 in front and 80 in the back. You can lower it about 10-13 psi from the recommendation before the warning light comes on. I'm told the dealer can not change this, while in the past they may have been able to do it.
You could lower the tire pressure and drive with the warning all the time. And it may be possible to remove the sensors and disable the tire pressure monitoring system. I don't know about that.
This is an interesting situation. I forgot about the on board systems that monitor tire pressure. The process to change the parameters is not too difficult but maybe it's not worth it.
My only point in my posts is that it's silly to go around with max pressure and minimum load. Some may think that is not legal or smart or maybe that it should be against the law, but I don't. Rather than argue lets just lead our lives the way we want and not expect everyone else to think like we do.
