Start at about 35 for around town. Anywhere from 30 to 40psi will work depending on your personal preferences.

I travel often with a disco3 running 18in wheels. We'll run that down to 20psi on rough tracks and down to 12psi on sand. But generally we'll leave it at about 25psi for a round trip into the high country if we are lazy.

I use mid 20s on rough tracks, down to 18 or less on soft sand, and use around 32 to 35 on bitumen. I was using 40 plus but found my tyres (Cooper at3s) were getting worn in the centre and not on the outside, which said to me I was running too high a pressure.
(Edit) I have 265/60 r18 too

A friend of mine said he runs on like 58 psi on bitumen, that gotta be really bouncy but bigger car and slightly bigger weels too i think.
