    Arrow 19" Snowy Tyre Pressure

    I've got the common droning noise coming from the back of my 150SRI. It seems to be less obvious when there are people in the back but can get quite tiresome (excuse the pun) at motorway speeds seeing as it only really kicks in @ 60mph when it's just me or with one passenger.

    I'll try the basics first can someone tell me what tyre pressure I should be putting in the 19's?

    Thanks in advance.

    About twice the rim diameter + 1psi or so as a rule. Is it not in the book?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    How long have those tyres been on the rear?
    Do you swap rear to front as they wear?
    Or do you only renew on each axle as they wear?

    The Vectra C suffers from a design that wears the inside edges of the rear tyres
    The maximum you can get is 15K miles, after that they will suffere from tramlining as the inner edges overheat
    This is the noise you can hear

    I sent two of my Good Year Eagle F1 GSD3 tyres for inspection as a result of this
    The car was then inspected by Good Year and this has been confirmed in writing
