    tyre pressures

    just wondering what tyre pressure people are running with on their 18 inch wheels with tyre size 225-40-18,i dont know if i am running too low with 32psi or if my tracking is causing my uneven tyre wear.

    when you say uneven, is it the middel or both outer edges that are wearing differently if so its down to tyre presure. if its just the outer or inner edge then its tracking

    Is your car a quattro? They tend to wear the outside and inside edge of tyres irrespective of pressures or tracking.

    hi thanks to all for replies. yes i forgot to say that it is a 1.9 quattro and that its mainly the edges of tyres that are wearing fast specially since they are only 5 months old approx!

    Im running 19"s on mine and same as you Rcpvin im unsure to what pressure to run in them. Similar story with wear as well on the rears, on the edges more than anything.
