In my sig there is a link to a 4th gen manual, also on the tire there should be wirting that says (max psi. xx). Your tire pressuer depends on your brand of tire and that manfactures recommend specs.

Re: what tyre pressure?????

it differs depending on which tires and wheels you have, and wouldn't you know it, the tire pressure is stated RIGHT on the sidewall of your very own tires.
who woulda figured?

That's the max pressure, not the recommended pressure. The recommended pressure is on the driver door sticker near the striker. Anyway, I've always run 36 PSI. Higher pressure improves handling a little and also helps with milage

exactly what I was thinking... anyway...

if the pressure is too high you can wear out the middle part of you tread; you will have better handling but loss of control will be less progressive (i.e. it will start to skid with fewer signs and less warning).

if the pressure is too low your handling will suffer but with more warning before loss of control. It will wear out the edges of the tire first.

I have yoko avid v4s on stock 92 si rims and run them between 35 and 40 (I tend to like 40 a little better). Obviously you don't want to inflate above the max of the individual tire... I think with a little more air the handling is a bit more crisp lean is reduced just barely. I don't think you will get accelerated wear within a reasonable range (as suggested above), just try bumping it up a little and if you like it stick with it or try a little more... if you don't, let some air back out!

and yes, higher pressure (within reason) = better mpgs (don't get too excited though, I doubt you will notice).

beware too high of pressure on wet roads, unless you find skidding to be exciting.

Re: what tyre pressure?????

i thought high pressures gives you a massive increased chance of a blowout?
