I have the Toyo Proxes 4 and was wondering what everyone is running in terms of pressure. They are at around 40 psi now, should they be more or less? When it was warm the other night they read about 42psi and yesterday morning in the cold they were about 38 psi. Thanks.

Recommended tire pressures for my W8 sedan with 225/45/17 tires:

<= 100 mph, half load, 35 front, 32 rear
<= 100 mph, full load, 38 front, 45 rear
> 100 mph, half load, 39 front, 36 rear
> 100 mph, full load, 42 front, 48 rear

Your car is lighter, so you could use a lower pressure, I guess.

I run 39 front, 36 rear.

I know myself and Ronnie were running 39PSI on each tire but then again are cars are a lot heavier.
