For f**k Sake you should run your tyres at the tyre makers recomended level +/- afew psi depending on driving condition's.
Running too high a psi and the centre of the tyre will wear out too quickly in the centre and running too low a psi and the edges wear out.
Also remember tyres should be cold when checking the psi and you should use your own good quality trye gauge for consistency (i have and use my own).
I personly run 32psi in my front tyres and 36 psi in the back ones, I have found that this gives me a nice feel and response through the steering wheel and my a**, even wear across the whole tread, good fuel economy, excellent grip and milage.
I have done over 40,000klm's in my EB on the tyre's I got when I purchased the EL Fairmont Ghia mags and they are still in good condition with plenty of tread left.

I dont chose to run 32 psi, read it again d***head, i run 35psi but it drops to 32 psi when i check it next. I bet u my tyres will be perfectly fine when i take them off. 17,000 kms and almost due for replacement due to burnouts, not inadequate tyre pressure.

your a syco f**k arnt ya, if it goes down to 32psi when you check it try checking it a little more regually. i honestly dont care how your tyres are when they come off, your a d***head if your getting so worked up over what tyre pressure to run. all im saying is that me (fitting tyres and workin with tyres all day) would run more in mine and my customers tyres.......



and yes MadMatt hit the nail on the head with the pressures

Lol im not the phsyco f**k who kept persisting with it. Im just stating my opinion and you must tear it to bits....

And you must care when you say you "have no doubt at all by the time you take them off they will be creased inside the tire already".

Im not worked up buddy, Just stating my opinion and my experience.

you actually were persisting with it and yes you stated but then went onto being a sarcastic smart a**, and now abussive.

i didnt tear it to bits, i simply said that 38psi wasnt to much, and its best to keep the pressures up in the low profile tyres due to butchering the sidewalls


and one other thing 38psi wont wear the center of the tread any faster then the shoulders

Agree with those 100%.
Where you put your tires within those brackets depends heavily on driving style as well.
Same with camber, there is no such thing as the 'right' amount, it depends how you drive.

And use a shim style kit because the cam kits tend sieze up.

Without the shim kit on my EB, there is no way i'd get more than a few thousand kms outta front tyres. Not to mention it would handle like utter s**t.
