Sounds insane, but really the second best way to go. The sidewalls of the tires are the thing we are working on here, keeping them from being held in a the same flexed position for months and that internal air pressure will allow them to resist the weight of the car better, and not be so flexed. thats why DD suggested the jackstands. If the tires are not supporting the weight of the car, they are happier. Oh, and if you set 42psi now, when it's 30 degrees colder, those same tires will have about 4-6psi less
