Re: Proper Tire Inflation for 18" vs 17" ("R" Kelly)

That's interesting. I ran 38-39 psi for a while in my previous set of Rossos, and that pressure minimized a lot of the tramlining and rear-end issues. But when I went to change my tires, I noticed that the center of the tires were worn significantly more than the outer/inner areas . . . and TRUST me, I corner hard quite frequently.

So to get even tire wear, I've reduced the pressure to about 35-36 psi. The handling isn't quite as "crisp" or responsive at that pressure. But I've since installed eibachs and ipd track-spec sways, so the handling improvement from those two upgrades nullifies the drop in tire pressure.

42 psi . . . man, that just sounds high

No one drives a steady 110-120 here, you just can't, no room.

Isn't that just ironic? With as big as the US is, we just don't have enough room to drive fast, lol!
