32psi all round normal carriage std wheels, fully loaded 36psi front 40psi rear. However from my mondeo days you'll find that 34psi all round will give a better ride and slightly better handling without damaging the tyres.

Well they're only recommendations after all. As long as you're somewhere in the ballpark you'll be fine
