...The tires themselves say max pressure 35 psi, so I thought that was concerning. Can they even be inflated to 55 psi if it says max pressure is 35 psi???
I haven't seen 35 max PSI tires since the 80s.....everything new seems to max out at 44 psi or higher. If those replacement tires are indeed 35 max psi(your reading this off the tires and not door jam of car??) then personally I would NOT go above 35 psi, max is max. Sure it can be pushed and they probably wouldn't blow, but why take a chance. Again personally I like to run with the MAX tire pressure on cars or a tad less, but not really more, well unless very cold weather is very close and then I may go up to 10% more, but never almost double
which it sounds like your tires may be inflated to.
