Default Blizzak Tire Question

I have Blizzak LM18's on my Legacy 04 15" year round. Yes they worked better the first winter yes I may change them this winter with something else, but for now what is the best tire pressure for them. I can't read anything written on them and Tirerack.com suggests 50PSI 'cold' which seems to be too much. I normally run them at 35.

Appear to be wearing fine. So far this year we have had snowy roads for about 5 days (main roads) my side road is snowy right now but that has only been like so for the past 5 days. I've had the tires on since day one, but I don't drive far. 13,000km in 18 month...about 8000miles.

I didn't know tirerack had pressure recommendations. Are you sure you aren't reading the Max Inflation Pressure spec?

If you look at the tire in question and then click specs, it tells you what tire pressure 'cold' rating is etc...

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.j...=Blizzak+LM-18

but 33F 32 R does sound better.

Even running at 35psi should be ok unless you are running into wear issues. I would NOT run those tires at 51. I believe that would be a max pressure not to exceed when mounting the rims.
