Ideal air pressure in Getz
I searched around but didnt get any thread on this.
The Getz door pillar sticker/user manual specifies 30 psi all over as ideal air pressure for 1-2 passenger load. However, I always felt this was slightly inadequate.
While reading through Car Bibles : The Wheel and Tyre Bible Page 2 of 2, I came across a section which states
"According to the wags on many internet forums you can get the best performance by inflating them to 10% less than their recommended maximum pressure. It's a vague rule of thumb, and given that every car is different in weight and handling, it's a bit of a sledgehammer approach. But from my experience it does seem to provide a better starting point for adjusting tyre pressures."
Does anyone know whats the maximum and ideal air pressure for Getz 1.3 stock tires?

I replaced my stock 155/80 goodyear to 175/70 Michelin XM1s on my Getz GVS 1.3 . I usually set the tyre pressure to 30psi every 2 weeks when refuelling. Invariably the tyres lose 1-2 psi over that period and the lower pressure adds to ride comfort, but i'm wary of any uneven/premature tyre wear.

I have Getz CRDI -Diesel Version which has tyres 195/6015R.
which needs & hyundai recommeds the tyre pressure to 33 psi as the diesel engine is heavy..
While my petrol Getz has company tyres -right pressure is 30 PSI
