Default What is the ideal pressure for RE92?

The dealer set them at 32 psi all around at my tune up last week. It seems soft for hard driving, but will inflating more cause uneven wear?

Thanks!

85 psi.. watch em blow and get a good set of tires Just kidding, the sidewalls of the RE92's are soft though, I used to ride around on 34/37 F/R, and then 36/39 for auto-x.. never saw uneven wear except for poor alignment from the dealer.

Owners manual says 32F 29R for my WRX wagon if I remember correctly. I found this to be too soft and bumped it to 36/37F 33/34R.

I have just got new Continental Conti Extreme Contacts that I'm running at the same pressures right now (and it feels substantially firmer).

Default What's this?

Here's why I posted this old noob question again. Two people reply with different opinions; same thing happens when I do a search: 20 opinions split right down the middle!

I saw a post the other day about how to dial in more or less understeer just by tweaking the front/rear tire pressure, but I do'nt remember the pressures or even which is supposed to be harder and which softer. Anyone got that link?

Thanks for repltying (you know what I mean)

I run an otherwise stock wagon at 35F/30R for reasons given in this thread.
