It should say on the inside of the passenger side door. I have the 17"s aswell, I think its 28 PSI, but don't quote me on that.

That should be there, but 3 door if you have 3 door model. Less weight, less PSI needed. 28 should do, also depends on how much weight there is in your car (inc the engine) - 1.6 should be 30PSI 1.4/1.25 28/29 ish.

31 on front & 26 on rear, that's probably why you were told they're overinflated Sam (rear at least anyway)

I've always done 30-32psi on the 195/45 16's. I believe they changed the psi on the newer models. I've taken it to rapid fit ford a few times and they've never said anything.
@Dieselpig that must be the newer sticker as the 195/45/16's for the front where 26psi.
