    Measure them in the cold and then do them to 32/33 max, by the time they've expanded and heated up they will be at 36/37psi.

    Mine are 33ish front and 35ish rears and seems to work well. Pressures should be higher if under heavy load or high speed and as my car gets to see high ish speeds pretty often and normally has crap in the boot I'd rather they were high rather than not.
