Question tyre Pressure Geelong to Melb

Hi i drive from Geelong to Melbourne everyday for work in my eb II now i was wondering the best pressure for this drive. I have 15 inch ef xr6 mags on the car with 205/65 R15 Front and backs are 225/60 R15. Whats the best pressure there at 30psi now.

Also whats sort of things should i do to get better handleing as i dont want it heaps to low i just want it dropped about an inch so i still retain some comfort as its a long drive.

Thnaks steve

IMO. I'd go 35psi no probs. It should help with fuel consuption. Maybe higher. Mind you for local cruising I'd run them at 30 for even tyre wear.

Around 34 psi for best compromise on decent braking and handling and comfort/noise, in all conditions.
