Tyre pressures

Post by Barnsley BXer » Mon Feb 05, 2007 10:59 pm

I've just fitted my Speedline(195 60x14 tyres) alloys and wondered what my tyre pressures should be

30psi is the norm,
but 16v's running on 6J's were 30 psi front and 27psi rear.

I run my TD the same 30 / 27, makes a big difference when hammering round corners.....inbetween breakdowns..... :roll:

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
