Tyre pressure

I had some toyo tyres fitted on my punto Toyo T1-R's 15"

What should the tyre pressures be?

Re: Tyre pressure

all the edges of your tyres will wear out and you will use too much petrol if you do that, trust me am running 15" toyos on 2 of our puntos, one for quite a few years

Re: Tyre pressure

The lower pressures are for safety of handling.

At the higher pressures the car will feel more 'pointy'

Cheers

Isn't that the correct method of negotiating a roundabout then? Full speed in, steer in and lift off, steer with lift-off oversteer until pointing in roughly the right direction and then opposite lock and a boot full of accelerator?

Or have I just been playing too much Gran Tourismo?
