Welcome to BF!
Most tires have maximum pressure indicated on the sidewall of the tires.
Anything up to max pressure should keep you from blowing up the tire. (Those numbers are generally conservative.)
No need to fill to max for most people on most tires.
A good sub forum to ask questions like this is General Cycling.

Welcome to Bike Forums. The tyres should have a maximum and possible even minimum inflation pressure on the sidewalls. If you pump it up to between the two you should be good to go.
