I'd have to look again to be certain, but I'm awfully darned sure that the rating on the tire says "cold" beside the number.

That is exactly correct. Also, the temperature does not rise the pressure inside the tire, as much as one would expect.

The most common standard (for radials on passenger cars?) seems to be 30-35psi.

Yes, and no. In my truck, thanks to its dash gauge, the tire pressure varies no more than 3-4 pounds on a day's journey. On my big motorcycle, however, on a hot summer day, it can climb 10 pounds.
