Default Proper tire inflation for Honda del Sol?

1994 Honda del Sol VTEC. Tire size 205/40RZ17. I know what the doorjamb says, but I don't think it applies to aftermarket sizes. The tires themselves say max 50PSI, but when I got the oil changed, they inflated them all to 35PSI. Doesn't seem right...

42 psi is what you need to use to compensate for the lower load carrying capacity of that tire size compared to what it was designed for.
