Thanks for your insights anyways!
Don't worry. It happens to the best of us. Sometimes, it's hard to trust hardware! You did good by checking with your LBS. Overinflating a tire, especially on hookless rims, can lead to serious harm.

80-85psi is indeed the good range. FYI, I use 28mm on same setup and I ride comfortable on 65-70pis (Giant's recommendation).

I can be indeed hard to push down for the last few PSIs. It depends on a few factors. The pump being the most important one.
