Yep I always used higher pressures similar to the folk on here.
On my kit cars however I use less because they weigh less.
Horses for courses old boy.
Exactly! On the lightweight (760kg) Carledo I run my 195/50/15s at 28 front and 24 rear dropping the rears to 12psi on the dragstrip.
But I expect to be running the considerably heavier (and softer sprung) Dolomega with it's 185/60/14s at about 30 all round.
You have to go with what works best for the car, not what someone said 40 years ago about a tyre that is no longer available! Tyre technology, like every other sort, has moved on and so should we!
Also, Justin has the right of it! An insurance assessor will not check tyre pressures during an inspection. The Police WILL, in the event of a fatality but only insofar as to make sure (as far as possible on a damaged car) that the tyres were at a reasonable pressure at the time if the incident. A few pounds here or there would not bring their wrath down on you!
