Re: V70R tire pressure (TexasV70R)

I run 36 PSI in my 17" Pirelli Pilot Sport 2's on a 2004 V70 R. Seems to work perfectly. Mostly mountain twisty driving. oclv

Re: (R_Rated)

36-37 for PS all seasons. <br>Your dealer is a *&&%^$% idiot and has absolutely no idea what he's talking about. NO tire for the R should be run at those pressures

Re: V70R tire pressure (row)

Theoretically more front pressure may give a little oversteer but in an AWD Volvo they should be the same.<br>He is i<U>ncorrect </U>in running different pressure on an R<br>34-37 <B>unloaded</B> is just fine<br>37-39 <B>loaded</B>

Re: V70R tire pressure (TomW)

Since you are <I>probably </I>the ONLY person to run staggered tires pressures<br>'ya think we're all maybe on to something?<br>(I've tried every pressure which way from Sunday, whatever they are, even all around seems to work better)<br>I don't disagree with you in general, I run 2 to 4 lbs more in the fronts of my<B> FWD </B>Volvos, but it doesn't work as well in an R
