    All round? that's very high mate. I run 33F and 34R for road driving, raise them to 34F and 35R for track work.

    There's nothing to stop you from using those pressures, it will probably give you a nicer ride with so much air, but your handling on the limit will be effected, and driving in the wet will be very twitchy, you will need to tiptoe everywhere.

    I guess if your just cruising around at 26.5mph with a few mates in the back 90% of the time, 36psi all round won't hurt. :respekt:
