    "An overinflated tire is stiff and unyielding and the size of its footprint in contact with the road is reduced. If a vehicle's tires are overinflated by 6 psi, they could be damaged more easily when running over potholes or debris in the road. Higher inflated tires cannot isolate road irregularities well, causing them to ride harsher." (Tire Rack)

    "Tire size and pressure info are vehicle specific and second guessing a vehicle engineer is not a good idea." (BarrysTireTech)

    Can you? I guess. Should you? Probably not....

    44 PSI is the maximum safe tire pressure for that tire..

    It has nothing to do with the proper tire pressure for your vehicle..

    Check your manual or the drivers side door post and follow the recommended psi. B)
