Default relationship between tire and PSI

What's the relationship between the quality and
wear of the tire and the PSI one can/should put
in a tube, assuming a brand new tube?

And why is it like that?

Wear varies oppositely to pressure (higher pressure gives slower wear).
A high pressure tire flexes less, runs cooler and squirms less on the
pavement.

Not sure what you mean about quality.

ok! if we pretend a scale where 10 is brand new tire and 1 is all stiff with visible cracks. on the tire it says max X psi. when the tire is worn down to say 5 on our scale, can it still take X psi? why/why not?

no I get it you can't inflate if there is a hole thru the tire!

thank you both.

I send this from the field on a smartphone with GG which is why I can't cite BTW. or maybe I just haven't figured out how.
