    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    About 36psi should be right.
    The general rule is 2 x diameter plus 2psi. = 36pi.

    The manual states for a 1.8:
    29psi front / 32psi rear for normal driving / load
    35psi front / 38psi rear for eco driving
    35psi front / 42psi rear for driving with heavy load

    I have always done double the rim size +2 and it has always served me well in the past. But having just fitted 2 new tyres to my car I found that it was too much, made the front far too light, when it had been perfect for my old NCT5's. Through a bit of trail and error I found 33 psi gave best feel and handling.

    I run 33 on the 17"s fitted to the other SRI, my XP2 is running 34psi. The 2xdiameter + 2 would require 38psi which I consider a bit too high and as Das says,.. feel too light in steering.

    Do the eco settings actually work?

    It must have some effect as there will be slightly less tyre contacting the road. I might put mine up to 36 and see how it fares. Just running the Shell V Power test to see if it's worth the extra pennies,.. on 3rd tank now so see if I get more mpg
