    Default 1.8VVTi Tyre pressures?

    I was just wondering what tyre pressures to put in I looked in the owner's manual but it says 35 in the front and 38 in the rear, it just sounds a bit to much.

    any help would be great.

    I have just bought my car, a 2008 1.8 VVT Design, so am not an expert. Checked the tyre pressures yesterday and for 16 inch alloys with 215 tyres, normal loads and speeds was 29 front 32 back (from my owners handbook), so your pressures do seem a bit high.

    For all the cars, it's always best to stick with what Vauxhall say. They developed it, and don't just pull these figures out of a hat (at least I hope not)
    Anyways, I don't rely on the pressure gauges on garage forecourts. The little digital or analogue gauges you can buy are much more accurate.

    Tyre pressures for the VXR are 38 and 42, presumably due to the added weight of the V6.

    so yours sound about right.
