The Right tyre pressue
Does anyone have the list of the right tire pressures based on the tire sizes. It would be of great help.
I have 205/60/R15 Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD2 and am currently using 35 pressure for them. I wanted to know the right pressure setting for different tire sizes.
Thanks in advance

to start with u need to know the oe size and oe recommended tyre pressures. if u are going lower profile than OE, then u will have to compensate with higher tyre pressures.
start with 1 or 2 psi more and go up if required.
there is no fixed pressure for each size of tyre. it all depends on the car, road conditions, driving style etc..
if u find the suspension working too hard on the same road at the same speed as before (when on oe tyres) u need to increase the tyre pressure further.
u need to take this very slowly - if u have too low tyre pressure, the tyres will wear out quickly, and so will the suspension as it will be working too hard.
if u have too high tyre pressures, u will have very less grip as u will be bouncing around everywhere.
also keep in mind the highest recommended tyre pressure for each model of tyre (is mentioned on the tyre sidewall).

I put 32 on my 195/60 tyred swift - suggest you start there and move upwards.
Tried 34 on the City Vtec for a laugh - it was like a dog on heat, jumping up and down....so was the old man when I told him!!!! -(I mean the jumping part!)
