tyre pressures

what does everyone run pressure wise?

I'm on a UK MY98 Classic w/ 16s on and I've been running 33/28 front/rear but last time I had my tires done they did 33 all round. So am I wrong?

Tyre makes make a difference as well. So pressures very between makes and it is also a bit of personnal preference.....

To be honest mate you are much better going for what feels right with the car.....

I know I ran 32 F and 30 R on 17's on the Scoobs......obviously less air gives you more grip more air gives you less grip and less tyre wear I messed about with mine for a while until they felt right

Really well i'm confused now just read a post from another fourm where this guy is running 40 front and 38 rear wtf ????????????? been running mine about 36 front and 34 rear am i wrong ??????????? to be honest there is something wrong with the handling at the rear but only on left hand corners makes a noise like sonic curbing.

I have a slow puncture on the Lhs tyre and have just been pumping it up every week maybe that one is damaged now but that tyre is not taking the weight on a left hand corner ???????? they are near ready for new ones now. so i'm searching for best deals on tyres at the mo best bet is camskill toyo proxes £130 a pair plus £30 for fitting........................
