    Well, first of all, the car has Koenig wheels on it. Thus the tire size is much wider that stock. 235 up front and 285 for the rear. I wonder what pressure would be correct for such wide tires.

    Thanks Dave.

    What's so strange is that the dealer actually put about 44 psi on front and rear for me. The ride home was terrible and I did check the pressure the next morning. 44 psi was the number I got from 3 different gauges that I have. Is there any reason for such high pressure?

    If the car is sitting for a while, some feel adding extra air will help slow down flat spotting. I am not sure how true that is....

    ...but it seems reasonable enough.
