    About 34 psi mate. Minimum 32 at least. You can even go up to 36 or even 38 if you are carrying a heavy load.

    It will depend on the tyre. Should be written somewhere on the sidewall. I just run mine at 40 all the time though.

    40 would be a bit too much for a 15. I keep 40 in my 18s. Tyre sidewalls will only show maximum pressure at maximum load, and shouldn't be set at that.
