Find 35F/33R on 215/40/17 F1s wif Heico springs gives a very nice feel. Firm, positive feel but not harsh.

My 34/32 gives me a stiff ride feel. But good cornering. Will try out 35/33 today.

actually for 215/40-17 the max load for GSD3 is 487kg @ 51 psi. the minimum PSI should start at 35 for the T4 ...

I pump 33psi front and back, on 215/40/17 stock shocks and springs. Perfectly comfortable for daily drive.

The stock springs actually give a harsher ride than the Heico. Used to run onli 33/31, 35/33 felt too harsh b4 the switch.

one more thing - have to check/pump when your tires are cold

Hmm.. What will happen if you travel at high speeds with under-inflated tyres? `bl `bl

Heat buildup, potential blowout and tyre may not bead wif the rims.

thanks...

i was wondering just if the discrepencies in tire pressures quoted were due to some quoting cold tires while some just quote the pressure that they set when they drive in to pump, which would be hot tire pressure and would be higher...
