Question 205/50/R16 Tire pressure?

I have a JDM Version 5 STI (1999) with the stock wheels and bridgeston potenza tires. Some local mechanic suggested me to keep 30PSI for both front and rear and he told me that AWD vehicles should have the same pressure on all four tires. Is this true for STIs?

with 30PSI the rear ties looks ok but the front ones are always looks like running on low pressure.

What is the recommended tire pressure for my car?

Thanks.

I was having the same problem with front looking low on air, took it to the shop and the wear on the tire was perfect so what it may look like is irrelevant, if the pressure in the tire is correct just leave it be.
