Tire pressure for 19" Goodyears on my S60? Same for winters?

    I have a 60 on stock rims with the GY RSA2 tires.

    Sticker says 42, my SC says 42, but I know people run at 45 or even 50psi.

    If there's a range, I would like a nice balance between range, ride comfort, and tread wear.

    Getting Dunlop Winter Maxx soon on Rial Luganos....same psi?

    Thanks!

    I've been doing 50psi. Better range, better tire ware (Last set was over 40,000 miles with regular rotations every 6k). Great traction both summer and winter. I'm running stock goodyear eagle rs a2's.

    During the summer, I set the fronts 2psi lower, as when supercharging, or in hot weather with the AC on, the vents, well, vent directly onto the tires, causing the pressure to increase tripping the over-pressure warning.

    The 42psi, feels like I'm driving with 4 flat tires. Energy consumption goes up considerably as well.

    Oy. I am paying the price with 21 staggered. No rotations and 40K will never happen for me! But I do love those damn wheels.

    Trying 48 now (50 is a little too close to the 52 max for me), and the ride seems really nice. Handles really well through corners. I'll try the same on my Dunlop Winter Maxx when I change them over.

    Thanks!
