Default Specific tire pressure ?

Okay, so I spent a pretty penny and got myself some g-force KD's for agressive street use (no track time for these puppies, got some v700's for that) and was wondering what pressure I should run in them.

Specs:2002 WRX, camber -2.5 front, -1.6 rear, toe 0 all around.
edit: 225/45/17

Note: I don't do much daily driving in this car, mostly spirited stress relief type driving...average about 6K miles a year in this car.

Thanks !

what size? and do you prefer steering response at the sacrifice of grip? prefer oversteer/understeer? start with different pressure and just try it out...

if you look at the plate on the driver's side entry you'll find a plate printed with recommended pressures. (it's too damn cold right now to go outside to look at mine...)

Start at those pressures and increase until you either:

a: find a nice compromise between handling and comfort
b: blow the tire off the rim.

have fun.
