Re: s60R awd tire pressure (jsalien24)

Summer tires 18" minimum 2.7-2.8 bar. Maybe a point lower in the rear if you think the wheels "hammer" to much..<p>Winter tires depend on manufacturer. Some brands advice high pressures at very low temperatures.<br>Example, Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme 18" for spirited-semi track use 3 bar near zero degree, up to 3.2 bar when freezing.... <br>

2.8bar at front<br>2.5 at the rear tires<br>Wear was perfect flat on fronts after each swap (no swapping tires F<->R, just drove until front were worn down, rears went to front and new tires to the rear -> the fastest way to corner is having GOOD rear tires <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> )<br>btw, I always drive in advanced.
