Unfortunately in terms of warranty, the dealer could potentially be a pain about it and tell you that you need to contact the tire manufacturer directly and get it done yourself.
Was that your experience? It's not like tire manufactures have store fronts we can go to, its these dealers that distribute and warranty products. It's the only process I ever known.

6 mo later

Have been away almost six months... some difficulty with sign-on to forum.
Today STL temp was 72F. Have set tire pressure to 40# all-around. Dealer apparently "dropped" them to 32# when car was in for oil&filter change (without mentioning to me). History tells me the 40 will drop to about 35# in the colder time coming.
Have learned how to delete addresses on Nav system. Manual had me confused on location of MENU - it is the button, not the tag on nav screen. Duh! So much to learn... great.
Cheers!

Am thinking "ccflor...." is in a location warmer than MO in Winter months (nice). 40# at 72F seems to drop to about 35-36# at freezing, which MO will be enjoying soon. Preferring track-ability to soft ride, I set pressures to "high side".
Cheers!

Too bad there's no guide on this as it can go a long way in our experience with this new G80 and any other cars we have. Often its a lot of trouble shooting from car to car. I don't mind though, will use the numbers reported here as a benchmark, thanks!

Don't know the "regulation" that governs need for a tire pressure monitoring system - may have grown from accidents determined to have under-inflated tires (most likely). There may not be a HIGH pressure requirement to monitor.

Update as of June, 2018: Have kept 40# on all tires since new (Feb. '17). "Ride" feels good, to me. Gas mileage is good and wear patterns are even. Planning to stay with the "40".
