Default Winter Tires

What tire pressure should I be putting in my Bridgestone Blizzaks to gain maximum efficiency?

My plan is to run them in the break-in period of 500 miles at 38/35 and then raise the pressure to something more normal, but I'm not sure what to raise the pressure to.

Has anyone ever tried 60 psi in the Blizzaks?

For what it's worth, I'm running 55 psi in a set of 155/80/13 Firestone Winterforce (no Blizzaks available in that size). Had them on for the last month and so far no problems. Ride is not appreciably more harsh than the standard 14" Potenzas.
