Hi Guys,

I recently bought and mounted Toyo R888's. I had a trackday event this past weekend, and deflated the tire pressure to 24psi for better grip as recommended by other drivers at the track.

Now that I am back from my trip, I shall be using my car as a daily driver again, and had initially planned to put back the stock Bridgestone Tires, but to be perfectly honest, I just love the way the Toyo's fit and look on the car too much.

I have decided to keep them on and daily drive with them, but not sure what tire pressure I should be setting them at?? Some are saying keep them low at 24-25 psi, and I just left the dealership who set them at 32psi all around.

Any advice or input would be highly appreciated.

Why so low? I'd probably run them at around 39psi hot especially since it's for the street -- no reason to run so low for street imho.
What would 39 hot be cold???

I have mine set for 33-34psi cold. Gets up to 37psi from street/freeway cruising.

Road noise is okay for DD with these?
When you have a midpipe and exhaust installed, they really dont bother you... Also the road noise comes up only above 100 kms/hr. The sound doesnt bother me at all... and once again, the way they look and fill out the wheel wells is well worth it for me....

Cold means nothing though.

You should set your track pressure at the temp its running at, every tyre will get to differing temps/pressures when on track. ie nsf 35psi, osr 30psi on a clockwise track.

Get on track get them hot then set them all to 29psi. Tweek from there.
