Default lets talk about tire pressures

so stock recomended cold pressure is about 26 psi on the stock size tires. but with most of us here not running stock, some changes might be in order?

giving that most of us run a 205/50/15 on average, about what would be a good pressure for a street tire? i have seen people set them anywhere from 25-35 psi cold. we all know that different tires respond differently, but this thread could be used as a general guideline.

Yup. As do temperatures, driving styles, and a lot of other things...

I've found my RE-01Rs to be most happy in daily street use if filled to about 31 PSI cold. Incidentally, this turns out to be about 33 PSI hot, which is right about where they like to be when autocrossing. So I don't really make a tire pressure change for that.
