    TYRE PRESSURE ADVICE: 225/40/18

    Have just fitted 8.5x18 wheels to my b5 A4 1.8T , wearing 225/40/18 falkens.
    Anyone know what the best pressure to run is?

    depends on the cars weight.

    225/45r17 on a TQS runs 36 front / 34 rear

    same tyre on an S4 seems to be 36 all round.

    I'd start around there and try up and down a bit.

    Craig runs his around 38 iirc.
