Post Suspension Specific Tire Pressure Settings (STi V5)?

Installed WRX STi V5 suspension (springs and struts) on my RS over the weekend (thanks again for your help redbaron), and I'm currently running the whiteline adjustable rear bar at 20mm, with BFG Comp T/A 215/50VR16 tires.

I'm thinking of starting at 42fr/38r.

If the sidewall is scuffed or you can feel it folding, increase the pressure. Hopefully the scuffing goes away before you reach max pressure on the tires. (you won't with RE92's, but dunno with Comp T/A's.)

If the sidewall isn't rolling, then DECREASE pressure to gain traction. Do this until you are happy or the sidewall begins to fold.
