40pounds isnt nearly enough even for dirt tires, My Maxxis say 45pounds and I have them I almost 60, so if it says 85 go right to 85pds

no if corase they wouldnt pop if you went over 40. going from 40psi to 85psi will be quite a big difference in landing as it feels harder, but you'l get use to it in a couple of days.
i say jus pump it up to like around 80psi or something see how it feels

you will have less rolling resistance and it will be smoother with 80 psi than 40
