Default First time on Rcomps ???

Can someone put me in the ball park with what psi I should be at with my new v710's. I was usually around 32-34 psi in my star specs last year. Also, is 45-50 degrees too cold for them? should I go with the 275 rcomps or stick with my 245 dunlops? Thanks

I ran around 32-31 frt/29-28 rear

Yea it might be a little to cold to get heat into them. but that really depends on how long the course is.

Absolutely wait until you get some heat in them, they really are a good tire though.

You're talking about autox, right?

Nice info on the pressures. I've always run mine 38 hot, though I haven't experimented with them too much. My one time co driver liked them at 43, though he was a (very good) Camaro driver and liked it super tail happy. I'll have to play with the pressures a bit tomorrow.

I had a used (almost dead) set of v700s I bought with a set of wheels. I noticed better traction with higher pressure, 35-40 than with below 35. Granted I was on a mostly stock suspension at the time, so your results may vary.
