Anyone experimenting with tyre pressure v range? I've upped mine to 44psi all around. Actually prefer the harder ride.

I run my Ampera at 39 (handbook has 35 for comfort and 39 for economy) I did have the car returned to me from the dealership with them set to 34 even though they went in at 39.

I pushed mine up 3 bar following the advice of another Leaf owner and like the handling and it takes the bumps better.
Had the fronts renewed at 38k miles, followed that with mot and service where they lowered them to 36 psi all round.
Now after leaving them that way for a few weeks I think I will put the pressure up again.

Be careful. I know we all want higher pressures to get the range but going much above the manufacturers maximum is not recommended. Those maximums are there for a reason.
