Re: Tires (was the new A6)

That is actually the MAX LOAD pressure, not the max pressure.
The answer is it depends on the tire and what you want for handling.
I run BFG Touring T/A (H rated), and keep them at about 38 front
36 rear on my A6QW. Seems to do a pretty nice job, although my
shocks are beat making it seem softer.

Some tires are VERY dependant on pressure (the D60 A2 comes to mind).
So your best bet is to try different pressures and see what you like.
