it depends on the car (weight), tire model, driving habits, and how you want the car to behave. 32-35 psi would be a good start with 2-4 psi less in the rear. keep an eye on how they are wearing and make the appropriate changes.

remember: more pressure = stiffer ride and less wear on the shoulders. don't forget an alignment.

oh yea, I forgot about that optional 17" wheel package.

but different tires do require different pressures. My falkens for example, require high pressures on the street and insane pressures for dodging cones.
