I usually put the minimum required psi into a tire. I almost never get a flat tire. And I always use cheap tires like Kenda and Chenshin and other no-brand tires.

Here's my theory...which I learned from my motobike days...I was taught by enduro riders that max psi gets more flat tires...the logic was the moto tire that softer (less air)...will more likely flex more and allow nails and other sharp stuff some chance to deflect away from the tire...a nail will punch into a stiffer (more air) tire because it is stubborn won't give any chance for the nail to find a way away.
