If you had a pick up, I would recommend lower in the rear, but I think you should stay with the recommendation on the driver side door label.

The front tires on my truck (goodyear wrangler st 245/75/16) cupped like s**t at the 35 psi on the door label. 35 is about right for the rear when unloaded, I think, but definitely too low on the front, at least with the tire size I mentioned.

Haha, just noticed - look in my sig at the closest tire - see how the edge is a little darker? That's because the d**n thing is cupped so badly that it doesn't touch the freakin road!

Lots of tire wear problems are from lack of rotating the tires every 6000-8000 mi.
