    Default just a quickie...tyres...

    .....what tyre pressure do my tyres need to be - they are 235/35/19 toyo;s??


    also - not sure if its just cos they're new but the tyres dont seem to have much grip @ all - going quick round corners it doesnt seem to be sticking to the road as well as yesterday when i had the sri alloys on.... was thinking maybe the tyre pressure is too low as they were supplied direct from a warehouse.

    rule of thumb is twice the rim size, so start around 38 - 40 psi..

    New tyres need a few hundred miles to rub off the oily **** off the surface.

    thanx mate someone else mentioned that tonight - the tyre pressure was only 30 psi per tyre too so i've pumped them all up to 38 - however it will take a few more miles for the grip to take hold i think.....then i can have some fun cornering again!!
