Re: Tyre pressure on XR 18's?
Ok i'm running 17x7 wheels with SP9000 tyres. I seem to be the odd one out in that i set my rear tyre pressure to 38 and fronts to 36. Reason being is that i feel the XR6 with a neutral even tyre pressure all round under steers abit too much for my liking. Therefore putting a tad more in the rear gives it abit of oversteer bias.
What i'm amazed at however is people running there cars with over 40psi. Believe me even with an XR6 running 38psi in the rears results in eaasy wheel spin in the dry.
