    Tyre Pressures

    HI, I have just bought a X reg 1.8t quattro sport A4. It does not have a manual. Can anybody please tell me the correct tyre pressures for an unladen and fully laden car. It has the standard 17 inch alloys.

    Thanks.

    The fuel flap only has pressures for 15" and 16" tyres, and mine has 225/45/R17s (10 spoke audi ones that may have been option for an A6 but not standard kit on A4). I've heard a variety of recommended PSIs from 32-36 and they seem to be ok when I leave them at 34, but does anyone know the right ones?
