put 35 in all of them and you'll be fine. bigger tires generally need less pressure

i think its normal for at least the front ones to look a little low since theres more weight on the front. if you want you could try put a little more in a see what it looks like

I ride at 40 psi all year round, but I also have nitrogen so I don't have to keep adjusting pressures.
