Please be gentle - my first post!

The handbook for my 250 Advance with 255/40 R18 95Y (rear) and 225/40 R18 88Y (front) suggest tyre pressures of 38 and 35 psi (upto 160 kph). My tyre fitter recommends 30 psi front and rear. Normally only two people and light luggage carried and I would prefer a 'softer' ride. Who's correct please?

Thanks

Mike

I would stick with the Lexus recommendation. I'm sure tyre fitters seem to want to stick 30 psi in everything...

I would also stay on Lexus recommendation, As when you have low pressure your tire sides will be suffering more.

Yep.....stick with 35 and 38.

Unless you really like purchasing tyres :whistling:

I got a honda jazz for my mom recently, on the ferry to Ireland (its new home) I decided to check the tyre pressure so i did in rosslare, one of the front tyres had....

90psi

90!

took me ages to deflate it, cant believe anyone could put that much air into a small 15" tyre, I was lucky it did not blow out. Told the garage about it, but i think they haven't a clue about tyre pressure.
