    Then again, my bicycle tyres are (hand) pumped to about 100PSI, so I don't know what I was worried about.

    Lol. Yep, on my TT bike I run Atlanta Golds, on a dry road I use 200psi!

    Re: Brake Disc Friction

    I put 35/33 in my tyres at the weekend and oh my god... just how harsh is the ride... generally the car feels faster, but you feel every little stone you pass over even if the tyre misses it!! Gonna lower the pressure to 33/31 I think and have the best of both worlds!

    Pumped mine up to 35 all round (they were down at 29 previously). Yes, rolls marginally easier. But ride is very much harsher. I swear I can hear the tyre go "boing" when it hits something, rather than cushioning it! . I suppose it's better that fearing the rim going bang. Probably go back to 32 all round. Seems to be good compromise for me.

    why would you do that?

    Do you like paying for new tyres?
