    12-15 non SI Stock Tire/Wheel/PSI thread

    I am experimenting with different tire pressures for my new EX sedan with the Continental tires. What would be the ideal PSI for the best mix of ride comfort, maximum fuel economy, and maximum tread life?

    Would it be 32 PSI all around as indicated on the door plate?

    32psi should be fine. More psi is for better mpg but the car is more noisier while driving.

    Like Rob said I would go with the recommended 32psi. Thats what I went with on my Si, I wouldn't play too much with tire pressure unless you know what your doing.

    I run 35psi , I like the handling better at 35 as opposed to 32.

    I use 35 psi and once they get to recommended pressure, I refill again to 35.

    Doesn't 35 PSI make for a firm, stiff ride?
