Hi There,

What would you guys suggest is the optimal tyre pressure for on road driving of a MY10 forester X with stock tyres and rims?

The placard on the car seem way too soft and spongey.

Cheers,
Brett

Stock Yoko running on 32PSI all around for a while (was basing it on the sticky thing on the driver door area) then 36PSI on the rear when I tow.

Then I had to run 36PSI all around because its uneven wear on my tyres I was told..

Maybe check out the sticky on your driver side door see what is the max when towing (even when you dont) and pump it up to that amount?

I usually run 36/34 F/R & bump rear up to 36 with the camper trailer which only has a towball download of about 50kg. If I'm doing extended dirt I drop to 30 all round.

the sticker on the my10 foz on the car is in kPa, thats why i reffered to it
I have 210 kpa all around, although nothing wrong with bumping it up to 220 kpa. I have done that before, no problems - u get a firmer ride. Although, I wonder how it goes especially with the very hot dry summers we have over here in Western Australia.

Psi's

I just think my brain copes with remembering a smaller number easier- I run 34 on my 17" XT Adrenalins, little firm but seems best compromise.

Depends on the tyre type and loading.

36 for the Dueller 693 LTs; bumped up when loaded/towing the CT. Dropped by about a third for outback gibber and corrugated roads.

40 was recommended for the Dueller 697 LTs. Similar adjustments made for non-standard conditions.
