Just upgraded standard 16" wheels to 17" Prodrive ones with 215/40/R17 tyres.
What are the correct/best tyre pressures?

Forgot to say..........

Get a decent gauge, cos the petrol stations are aweful......

I use a cheap digital one from Halfords, about 5. Needed this as I have a motorbike aswell. Now that does handle if the pressure is different.

OK thanks. I've got a decent gauge, so I'll give it a try.

I try to keep 2+psi diff fr/rr.

I like fr34/32rr - and as previously said, prefs depend on driver and tolerance for NVH vs. stiff sidewalls.
