I (and probably everyone else here) has zero experience with that kind of street tire.. Tire pressure is one component, but if getting neutral handling was simply a matter of tire pressures, there'd be a lot of very broke racers with very chagrined expressions.

Considering your sidewall is so tall, go with max pressure (although 35 sounds low for max pressure). Use shoe polish on the tire sidewall to see how bad your tires are rolling over, adjust pressures that way..

Good luck.
