Tire Pressure

I know they recommend 33 psi cold, but I have found that I think I get the best ride and drive with it around 32 psi. Just wondering what others have found?

Re: Tire Pressure

I really don't think that 1 psi will make a terribly noticeable change in your ride... But anywhere from 30-34.

Re: Tire Pressure

For the factory Michelin 265 60 18s on the door it's 33psi cold. The only thing I would worry about is going to low can cause heat buildup however, I don't think 1lb is going to hurt much.

Making pressure less will take more $ from your pocket for gas, making it higher will be stiff but better on gas a little. However, I am sure you are kidding; you need to be super sensitive to feel this pressure difference
I could between 32 and 37 for example on low profile tires as I am using on mine G37 for example.
