    Default Eco Tyres and Pressure

    Just a quickie, in the back of the manual it states the tyre pressures to be 33 (I think) but they also include an Eco chart with the pressure set to 38 (My tyres have the eco mark on)

    I assume setting them at 38 I won't notice any adverse affects?

    My Manual says that for Better Fuel Consumption use 35 on the front and 38 on the back and i've never had any problems ... it does say "ECO" beside it in the manual ... do my tyres have to say ECO as well? Should I not be putting so much in?

    I might try 38 today, Just having a read around and I think the Eco mark means the tyre has less rolling resistance

    The Eco setting is good if you do a lot of motorway miles. Can make things a little skittish on city or country roads.

    I run mine somewhere in between the normal and Eco setting - seems to work well as I get dead on the official fuel consumption and I don't drive particularly economically. I'm running 215-50 Goodyear NCT5 on the rear and 225-45 Bridgestone ER300 on the front.
