    tire pressure

    i have stock wheels on my trans am 16''
    what is the correct tire pressure?
    the tires in the back say 51 PSI max load
    the tires in the front say 42 PSI max load
    are all tires supposed to have 32 PSI?

    Don't go with the max load pressures - my door sticker says 30 PSI cold all around, I run a couple pounds less in the rear cause of the Nittos - seem to wear better that way.

    I run 32 all around. But my door says 30. I like the way they ride at 32.

    as already stated, go by what's on the driver's door tag when tires are the same size. 30 psi. even the 275/40-17 are the same 30 psi.

    yeah even with my 17 inch rims i run about 34 front 32 rear

    low to mid 30s for 16 and 17s i guess, make sure to check at least each week especially with changing external temps.

    If you are going to do any extended high speed driving, you would want to probably go with 40-42 psi.

    It will help with the increased load pressures, reduce the latent heat build up in the tire and ultimately increase tire life and ability under such conditions.

    Driving like that though may cost $$$$ more than tires if you get busted

    I have the stock 16 inch wheels and Dayton Daytona ZR's, they ride best at 32psi and the stock tires I had always ran them at 32psi. They wear even and have had no problems at the psi.

    If I dont plan on needing the flex in the tire to race I run 35 all around. Drop to 28-30 if I plan on looking for a race. Just changed 2 of the 4 original GS-C from the factory at 38000.
