    Hi.
    I have just fitted some 205/55/16 winter tyres on Steelies to my A3.
    Does anyone know the recommended pressure for this tyre size?

    Should be on the silver plate inside the drivers door reveal. Mine said 33 psi front & 29 psi back for 205/55 16 M+S, as opposed to 32 psi front & 29 psi back for my normal summer 225/45 17s.

    Yours may be different depending on body style and engine size though.

    Cheers, mine says 36F and 32R. What does M+S stand for?
