Ride: DENTED UP OLD AUT WAGON

Location: Wellington
New Zealand

Front Dunlop Sport Sp3000 235-45-17 @ 40psi
Rear Dunlop Sport Sp1 255-40-17 @ 40psi (although 35 seems a wee soft for cornering hard, 40 is about right for the amount of stuff carried above the rear axles... 40 doesn't grip as well at the end of the day... It's up to you what you make of it...!)

Ride: EL XR6

Brand: Toyo Proxes4
Size: 235/40 R18
Pressure: 38 psi
After a bit of experimentation, these pressures work the best for me. Any lower and my fuel consumption noticably increases but any higher and it tends to be a bit skatey in the wet and the ride gets harsh on rough roads.
