Tire Pressure...

I just got some 17" for my car it originally had 16". Do I still inflate my tires to the specs in my ownerfs manual?

Man... Max PSI is on your tire wall...measure when cold, but don't MAX out your pressure (heat expands the air when you drive)

Follow your owner's manual's specs. Your car's weight didn't change.

but if he put new rim on his car, then technically his weight did change.. unless he got some light ass 17's.

Yeah then after reading what it says go drive around for a bit to heat up the air in the tires. If it's a few PSI under the max pressure them you are in business. If not fill up your tire while it's still hot to make sure you don't go over the max limit.

Hope this helps .

As I said, "Follow your owner's manual's specs. Your car's weight didn't change."

Importeck, what about when a person gets into the car? Or you fill up with gas?

So if I have lightweight 18s and low pro tires I still keep the pressure to stock spec (around 32psi)?

i ran the tires at 35 front and 32 rear.

at 39 you must feel every pebble in the road.
i wouldnt recommend going that high!
just my 2 cents

my 2dr V6 seems nose heavy, so 39psi isn't all that bad.

anyone know how heavy the front is on V6 coupes?

I just checked the front tires and I'm getting almost perfect wear. I went down 1 psi beause the center had more dirt that the outside tread.

That's probably a little lower than recommended, but your ride should be even better, at the expense of some handling. Does your handling seem a little "sloppy/slow resonding"? Try increasing your pressures 2 or 3 or 4 psi and see how you like it. Your ride will be a tiny bit stiffer (may not notice it though), but your handling should improve a bit. If your not into "spirited" driving, then a lower pressure may work better, since the ride would be smoother and you wouldn't notice the slightly degraded handling characteristics (because you don't push it to extremes).
