Pirelli Corsa III psi

Just scored some Pirelli Corsa IIIs for $225 delivered! I have read nothing but good reviews of these tires, so had to try'em. My PPs are about thrashed anyway.

What PSI are you track addicts running in them? I am guessing around 30/31

The Pirelli guy told me that the new tires (latest Pirelli Supercorsa Pro) should be run at 32f HOT and 26 to 28r HOT. I don't know if that would be the same for the Pirelli Corsa III's. I used to run 30f/29r cold pressures on the older tires.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.

That sounds pretty low to me. Do you mean to cold?

I'm not sure if this info applies to the current DCIII's or not but the Diablo & Diablo Corsas when used for trackdays/racing the overwhelming recommended PSI's from Pirelli tech's was to retain standard pressures as you would use on the street, ie cold psi 34-35 f&r. There was a big discussion/debate on the WERA board some 3yrs ago when the DC's were popular and this is what the consensus agreed upon.

Also, since I'm a Pirelli dude, some excellent info in there:

On my original diablo corsas I ran 32 front and 34 rear and it worked great. These are not full race tires so I wouldn't think the 28-30 range would work properly
