Default Tyre pressure

Hi guys,

Had the car for 6 years now and always run Hankook V12 Ventus tyres. Just needed 4 new tyres so gone with

2 x Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 215/45 R17 Y (87), Asymmetrical
2 x Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 245/40 R17 Y (91), Asymmetrical

I have always run with 32psi in the Hankooks, is this the optimum pressure for these tyres?

Cheers, Nige

Hi Nige,

I currently have these, though mine are the XL version and I run with 32psi all round and everything is fine.

I have read previously that sometimes the tyre walls can feel a little soft, if you find this you could always put in another 1 or 2 psi. Won't hurt, though you may see a little bit of uneven tyre ware.

Not sure if that helps.

I run my Goodyear Eagles at 31 all round and it's fine.. Not sure if I could tell the difference of 1psi on the road.

My temps go up 4-4.5 psi when hot.
32psi cold on Ad08s still fairly new tyres also,if that makes a difference ?guess it does a little.
Just bought a Halfords tyre gauge,just cant trust the garage machines..
Edit: 31.5 F - 31R & with 225/255/17s

I run 30psi front and 29psi rear on stiff side walled, semi slicks. Ths is on a slightly lightened, full Polybushed, stiff coilover car with wide 17" tyres.

I have the same tyres and sizes as yourself. 32 all round has always been OK, tyres have always worn equally throughout the tyre
