Hi,

Today I swapped the stock Michelin Energy saver for Goodyear tyres. I asked the technician about right tyre pressure, and was told 32psi.

Considering stock tyres were rated / recommended at 36psi, this seems low. Does anyone here use these tyres? If yes what pressure do you pump the tyres to?

45psi all round. This is my second set and the first set wore evenly across the tread despite the pressure.
I don't know what planet the tech was on - the door sticker should be obeyed as a minimum even if using "solid" sidewalls such as runflats.

I was testing to read the recommended pressure. Saw 50psi as max pressure I'll check again and pump up to 40 tomorrow

Pushed the pressure to 40psi.

The accuracy of the pump isn't probably that good as TPMS shows 37 but hey go better than before
