Spirited driving tire pressure


Recommended Posts

On the track you do not want to run street tires at less than 41/45 hot. If you run less than that you will roll the tires and cord the outside shoulders if the car has street alignment.

Spirited driving means different things to different people so what works for one person may not for another. I would start at the factory settings, drop pressures a pound at time and watch your tire wear.

Also tire gages are never accurate. At the track once I got 4 or 5 from different people. The variance was 3#. Use a decent one and if you can use two. Check them against each other so you can see if one of them starts to go bad.

Spirited driving means driving fast around a couple of bends on a twisty road and stopping afterwards on a traffic light for instance meaning that maximum grip on NOT very hot tires is the goal since you don't sustain high speeds or push the car for more than a 2 couple of minutes at a time. I think the the 33/38 set up should be a good start for the track (to eventually reach the 41/46 hot) but marginally low for the road...
