    Question Tyre pressures 1.9 cdti 120 16"

    Morning,

    To avoid hijacking thread http://vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=151965

    I currently have a 1.9cdti 120 on standard 16" alloys.

    I run 32psi all round at the minute as specified by the owners handbook.

    Do you recommend upping the tyre pressures for reqular motorway usage?

    After eventually finding a new job after being made redundant, I now need to travel from Derby to Leicester everyday (about 35 miles each way), and wondered if putting more air in the tyres would help with mpg or general well being of the car?

    Putting more in than the recommended pressure will shorten the life of the tyre if you're not careful as the centre will wear more than the outer edges.
    Also an over-inflated will make the car handle worse as it will lose some of its natural bounce.
