    Tyre pressure on sports suspension

    Hi

    Another old chestnut with tyre pressures...

    I've just bought a 1.9TDi sport from a mate and felt I could now venture into the Audi sport website, with which I have found very useful so far.

    The car is fitted with Michelin Primacy 205/55 R16 tyres. Recommended on the door pillar is 34psi. I've looked at Michelins recommendations and they are 31 psi with no mention of sports suspension. Now excuse my ignorance but are pressures a little higher for sports suspension cars? I've read quite a few discussions on here to get ideas. Should I just stick with Audi's recommendations?

    Thanks

    Mark
