    hi just looking to see what everyone runs there tyre pressures at.

    i have a 2010 audi s3 with 18" alloys michelins ps3 225 40 y rating on

    and i currently run them at 42 psi front and 33 psi rear

    does that sound about right?

    i try to check the pressures once a week to keep the tyres in good condition and fuel economy etc

    cheers chris
