    I use 34 front 38 back on 17" S3 alloys. You want more in the back then the front to improve turn in.

    I run mine at 28-30 front, 30-32 rear to try and reverse the natural understeer characteristics.

    Also depends on the profile of the tyre. Generally the lower the profile the higher the tyre pressure to an extent.

    For your stock tyres, just follow the pressures on the sticker under the petrol flap.

    When I picked my S3 up I thought the ride was a little harsh for std suspension, checked the tyres, 53psi all round !!
    have always ran about 34 - 35 all round in my other s3's I find 32 feels a little too soft.
    But it all depends on the type of rubber you've got and the roads you drive down, and personall preferance really.
