Post Tire presure?

What are your tire pressures?

I have 34F and 32R.

Depends on what tires you have & what you're doing with them (cruising, autoxing, etc).

I'm running stock tires(yuch, I know). I'm running them a few couple lbs. over recommended pressure. 34's up front and 31's in the rear and I check it once every couple of weeks.

yikes. I guess i'm running it high. Cruising in highway, I leave 'em at 40/35. Isn't this better for gas mileage? Auto-xing... 60/55 =) max psi. 44 my butt.

I'm running my stock size Kumho's at 37/28 on the street. Haven't had them out to an auto-x yet but I will most likely start out at 44/40 and see how it goes.

If you're refering to RE92s...they are very lumpy! You need to pump them higher to prevent that bottom bulge.

disclaimer : please do this at your own risk.... after all it's a Brigdestone product.

Hey, the Bridgestone/Firestone tires only pop when underinflated!

Anyway, I run Pirelli P8000 Vizzolas at 46/42 all the time. AutoX and street. I like the feel and response. The chalk lines on the tires are always right at the sidewall mark, so I'm right on with the optimum all-around pressure. Yay.

Here is the same tire at street pressures (32/29)...note how bad the chalk is marked onto the sidewall:

Trunkmonkey is here! There is no cone...

I've got Kumho Ecsta 711s, stock size, and I run 38f/35r. I just drove up Pikes Peak Saturday afternoon and I was able to get throttle-induced oversteer around the gravel switchbacks. It's pretty good on the paved streets, too. I have the stock rear bar, btw.

How's the wear on your rear tires at 28? What is the car like at that tire pressure? Hmmm...
