The pressure should be listed in your owner's manual and/or on the doorjam of the driver's door. Probably something like 34 psi, so you may want to add a little bit.

That's 30.5 psi. I have 205/50/16 tyres and I run 35 psi all round, which is 2.4 bar. But my tyres are Dunlops with an 89 load rating, so the sidewalls are not very stiff. Any less than 35 psi feels too soft, but go for whatever feels right.

You know tyre pressure is an odd thing, whats recommended it not always best IMHO.

I am suppose to have 35 psi in the front and when i do the steering wheel goes light! 32 and it feels just right,30 and it gets heavy.

I have 195/50/15 and on the back i have 28Psi

anything more and i feel ever bump.

maybe am wrong?
