Aside from the one tyre which is 1psi lower and bothers my OCD, the tyre pressure has been constant since picked up.

They are set at 40psi (one at 39). Is that too high even with the 19” wheels?

40psi is far too high for normal everyday driving.
Why do you not run them at Ford recommended pressures?
For example the 225/40 R19 tyre pressures on my car are stated as 32psi front and 26psi rear.

I think they all get delivered at 40 all round. The dealer should have changed them at PDI.....Obviously yours didn't.... :(

It certainly appears that way. So are we talking the usual 34-35psi for normal driving with 1 to 3 people onboard?

38/40 psi is an eu rule/recommendation I think.

So do I and I posted a photo of the plate that is on the inside of the pillar when you open the drivers door.
Our cars have the same size wheels and tyres.

Yup same here and i set them at that in summer and add some more in winter to return to 32/26 then remove when it gets warmer

I’m thinking uneven wear if set too high or low, 40psi seems high considering when driving psi could increase a further 3 or 4 psi
