Hi and Happy New Year.

Dr Bones should be able to help with wheel alignment..camber etc

As the tyre pressures there should be a max pressure rating written on the side of the tyre,depending on if your carrying passingers about alot will depend on what pressures you run in the rear tyres.Im running 17 wheels on my car and put 35psi in the rears.

Would be a good idea for everyone to check there tyre pressures now the weather is colder as the pressures will change :)

Someone running the sport 18s might be along soon and give more info.

Cheers chips.

I put 34psi all round in mine.

Here's a link to ponder over regarding wheel alignment

I have a Series I with 10" rears too and before changing all four tyres I ran them all at 32psi, but when they were changed the rears were more worn down the middle as if they had been over-inflated.

I'm not sure if this wear occurred from when I got the car to changing the tyres or if the damage was already done before I got it.

I've never known what psi to use for the best since.

Interesting, changed the tyres on my standard width sport rear wheels recently and they too were worn across the centre section of the tyre and I run them at 32psi as it suggests on the sticker on the driver's door pillar. They were Dunlop SP 01 Sport tyres and lasted no more than 10,000 miles.

Must be a problem with the geometry.

Remember though, that door sticker relates to the tyres on the standard 16" wheels and was probably stuck there in the factory and I believe the Sport mods were done after the cars arrived in GB.
