Default Re: What Tyre Pressure?

I run 225/40/18's at 42psi. Bumpy but it's very low. But handling is good and tyre wear is very even.

You could look at this topichttps://www.vwt4forum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=329291
After reading my reaction there you mayby understand what is important for the pressure.

Then if you give details of tires and car, I can put them in my calculator for motorhomes, wich is also good for other cars with speed used below 160km/99m/h and no important camber angle at the back.

I have a sticker on the inside door jam which gives readings for a laden van and an unladen one. Currently riding it unladen with winter tyres 195/70/15. The pressures are 44 front and 38 rear giving slightly over in case of passengers.
