Hi, i'm running 225 45 18 tyres and wondered it you had seen or give me advice as to the tyre pressure i should have in them. I've checked them all and they are running anything from 34 to 42 on the actual 4 tyres. They are on a swb t32 t5.1 kombi

I always go about 42.

Reading your post made me wonder, what if I painted strips across the tread on the tyres and monitored where it started to wear out? So if the middle went first, too much pressure, if the edges, then too little?

It's mad enough that it might just work.
I'm running them at 38 but I think I'll go 42 on the front and 40 on the rear and see how I get on as it's a 180 bhp it will soon tell me lol.

That is a standard sportline tyre size and the pressures are on the sticker inside the fuel flap on mine I think.
I'm running 44 when I have a full load of tools
