Default What tire pressure you run on your RE070 on the STI?

Im testing different pressures. Lower pressure give a more comfortable and less jumpy ride but the road noise is increased, and my buttdyno tells me the car is more sluggish and stearing responce is slower too. Higher gives me better stering, faster responce and less tire noise at the cost of a more bouncy ride.

im running right now 39f/34r. Seems like a good trade between responce/noise/gas guzzling. Ill later try 40/36 which was what I had been riding since I got the car

For daily driving, I run 45/40. I used to run lower, but testing during AutoX and the performance of higher pressure has converted me up. For AutoX, I run about 48/42 (50/44 warm measurement). These numbers were based on testing with chalk on the side.
