Question Tyre pressures?

What pressures does everyone run in their BAs?

I suppose when you answer you should say what wheel sizes and if its a V8 or 6 coz of the different engine weights etc.

I got XT 6 with 17" and Im currently running 37psi front 40 rear.
Feels good

Re: Tyre pressures?

I use to run 45psi on the front and rear of my BA XR8 ute, but would loose the ass end on gear changes and around corners too easily. So now I run 45 on the front and 38 on the rears. Seems okay. For some reason the dealer put 50psi on front and rears when I first took delivery!! Oh..and mine are the 17s

Re: Tyre pressures?

If you load up your ute you would want to add more pressure. I have an XR6T and run 38 both ends.

Re: Tyre pressures?

40 front, 38 rears BA XR8 ute

Same for the strip too, lower pressures seem to get more wheelspin

Re: Tyre pressures?

wow, 36 front, and 36 back with nitrogen in my BA XR8 sedan (17"). I have run these pressures for 10 months, and the tyres are wearing perfectly, no sign of over or under inflation wear. Actually surprised considering they are also Dunlops

Re: Tyre pressures?

I notice a lot run harder front then back.. I have always run harder rears.
Is there a science to this?

Listen to ^^this man^^ he knows his business.

XR8 Ute between 40-42 both ends. Have run lower at the rear but tend to carry stuff so keep it up. 17" SP3000a's, 20,000+K's and wearing very evenly.
