I know this has probably been discussed plenty of times, but I need a bit of help here. What psi should I be putting in my Bridgestones (front & rear) for general driving conditions. I've tried all sorts of variations and I'm still not sure.
Any advice gratefully received.

Mines a UK spec and I can't find anything anywhere about it.
I know that Prodrive used to say use 33psi front and 30 rear. I was really just wondering what other people are using and whether it makes a huge difference to the handling when not on a track.

Maybe x,000kg/m^2 ?

My 2 cents.
P.-S.: My tire are standard for my car, i.e. 185-70-14

I can't imagine how it would feel if they were inflated to the max. of 44psi.

Is there a decimal point between the numbers as
2.2 bar = 32 PSI
2.3 bar = 33.4 PSI
And I was always taught, which does not prove anything, that the tyre pressure given was for maximum load
Now I personally do not ride with 5 people and their luggage every day, so I adjust mine accordingly.
My GL-10 (Old school talk and I know it does not matter -13" wheels, what matters is 185/70) is very happy and wears her tyres evenly at 28 fnt 24 rear. But I believe my car also weighs less.
I am saying your results may vary, no batteries included.
Hope this helps
