Tire pressure for stock tires

Hi,

yesterday I was at the tire shop and the guys from the shop filled my tires with 41 psi. I´ve got the stock tires, what tire pressure do you recommend for normal street driving?


Thanks
Paul

P.S. Very nice forum

41 psi is too high. I believe the Manufacturer sticker on the inside of the driver's side door recommends 35 psi.

Thanks and welcome to the Corvette Action Center. :)

Let some of that air out...

I run my tires at 30 psi. 41 psi is way too high. My door sticker calls for 30 psi and I find that it gives the best ride at that pressure. I have put 32 lbs in each tire in the past and the ride is pretty jarring. :crazy

Thanks,
I thought that pressure is too high. The guys at the shop campared the tire pressure of the corvette with the tire pressure of the VW Golf.:duh

:eek If possible, I would avoid bringing the car back to that shop in the future.
