HEY EVERYONE,
WHEN I BOUGHT MY CAR 6K MILES AGO IT HAD BRAND NEW NITTO 555 245/45/17'S ON ALL FOUR CORNERS. I JUST FINISHED FULL BPU +CAM GEARS AND WAS WONDERING WHAT PRESSURE I SHOULD RUN FRONT AND REAR? I ALSO HAVE NEW EIBACH PRO'S AND KYB 4WAYS SET ON 2 FOR NOW....SO WHAT SHOULD MY TIRE PRESSURE BE??? WHEN I RUN 40 PSI ON ALL FOUR THEY SEEM A LITTLE TOO HARD....HARSH.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT IS RECOMMENDED AND WHAT YOU ALL LIKE.

ONCE I AM DONE BURNING OFF THE REARS I WANT TO GO TO 295...WILL THEY RUB AND IF SO WHAT IS THE LARGEST I CAN GET BACK THERE???

THANKS,

TODD:D :D

I always keeps my pressure 30psi and above. If I am right, the correct pressure you should put is around 35psi. Correct me if I am wrong.

I run 36PSI all around and it seems to work best for me. 245's are pretty narrow for the rears, stock size is 255. Do you have the stock rims? I think 285's are the largest you can run without any rubbing, but I'm not 100% sure of that.

i believe the largest you can go on stock rims is going to be a 285 and even that is really pushing the envelope. 275's will be a better fit. On 18"x10" wheels you can fit some 295's with the correct offset, between 48 and 52mm.

Pressure

Through extensive track testing on street tires, we have found 36psi on all four to be excellent. However, since your fronts and rears are the same size, reduce your front pressure by 2-3 psi.

I have 295/35/18's in the rear with Volk AV3's 18x9 +44 offset and they do not rub.

I wish I had 18x10's in the rear though...the wheels were on the car when I bought it.

Also, pressures below 38 seem a bit sloppy. This could be in part to the oversized rear tire on the 18x9 wheel.
