I'm running 28psi front and 23psi read cold, for the road twisties. Any more than that and it doesnt feel planted. Its weird, its the first tire i got that i have to use less air in the back than in the front for the street.

For the track i use 26f and 18r ..

Reason they feel weird is you're probably never getting those tires up to proper temp. I'm guessing since you are in in Europe you have a UK211. On the track typically I started 28 cold front and after an hour on the warmers adjusted to 30-32 depending on track temp. Rear started out 20 and after an hour 22-25 depending on track temp. For the street I would say start 28F 25R and see how it feels. But the Corsa III was a street tire and the 211 is a pure race tire they will turn in differently because of construction. Corsa III will have a smoother transition into a corner while the Dunlop will basically drop you on your face. Just my experience. Good luck.

to most of it.

To the OP - However in my opinion on the street, don't drop the front below 30psi as the front is not an ntec construction. Street riding, you may not be braking hard enough to heat up the tire to optimum pressure and at very low pressures, it may feel imprecise.
