You would want to put 60 P.S.I. cold leaving room for expansion of the air in the tires when they get hot.
Passenger car tires not carrying heavy loads I would say that if Max. pressure on the sidewall reads 35 Max go with 32 P.S.I. cold.
This is going to have a change in cooler weather ,but in summer you would never want to max out the cold pressure reading,as this could cause tire failure .

check with your local tire shop you may be able to put a 17 inch tire on that rim. also check the tirerack.com or as a last resort a camper supply shop may have what you need
