Hmm, I'm sure you will get a variety of responses to this question :roll:

Front: 17" x 8" with 235/45's - 34 psi
Rear: 17" x 9" with 255/40's - 32 psi

YMMV #-o

I am running ,

Front & Rear : 17" x 8" with 235/45's - 32 psi all round.

I have found that setting these pressures quite accurately definitely helps the steering on these cars.

At these pressures I was amazed how positive my steering was even at quite high speeds, there was no vibration or wander at all. Not bad for a 30 plus years old car !

Thanks all. I've got Michelin Pilot 4's, 235/45 all around and had settled on 32 on all 4.
