Are you talking about experimenting what pressure is good, or do you mean what was recommended for the car?

If recommended, open the door and theres a sticker on the side on the pillar
If I remember right mine is 29, but dunno if the older Focus's <- ? are the same

For an experiment I tried 35 PSI, just a pound more than the door sticker; It is not noticable but so far I am satisfied with it.

if you have replaced your tires with a different brand, it doesn't matter what your door jam says...the tire psi is on the tire, you have to look and it will say max psi...
