If it were me, I'd prolly be putting 36-38 for normal driving, 40-44 for high speed driving. Bearing in mind the slightly higher pressure will result in the centre part of the tread 'potentially' wearing more quickly. :)

That is very kind of you to say. :)

Oh - you also might want to chuck the pressures up to 40-44 if you are going to be carrying a lot of weight. But do bear in mind, that the harder the tyres become, the greater the risk of skidding on wet roads. So don't go mad with the pressure - especially if it is pouring down! :grin:

thanks again... Im mostly afraid of damaging the tires due to hard roads here in mexico, specially the ones with potholes all over them.....Ive seen bubble damage on low profile tires due to this and improper tire pressure.....

Did you like my wheel/tire setup arf? now be honest!!!! You being this forum's top poster makes your opinion really valuable!

Oh dear - I think you've made a mistake with that brand - they're avoided like the plague in Europe...... NOT! :D

Hankooks are quite a popular brand in the UK. In fact, the Ventus was one tyre I considered, but I was in love with the KWD,s.....

Oh - and BTW - a pothole can totally screw just about any tyre - it's purely luck (although the lower the profile, the greater the risk). :)

Hows about this tip.
Start with the pressure around 36ish.
Get yourself a nice thick piece of chaulk, and run a line of chaulk accross the tread of your tire.
If it wears in the on the sides first, add a bit, repeat.
If the line wears in the middle, drop her a few lbs.
