On the door frame the placard suggests 33 PSI front and 40 PSI rear for a full load on my particular tires (29 front/32 rear for regular load). Isn't this quite a large difference between front and rear? And are these suggestions the same in Europe and elsewhere?

With regards to nitrogen inflation, I've heard that there is negligible benefit over air since it already has about 70% nitrogen. Does anyone want to clarify this?
