Suggestions for Metzeler Racetec tyre pressures on the street

Hi,

I've just unwrapped my baby from its winter hibernation and charged her battery. I had some Metzeler Racetec K0's fitted before i packed her away and now its time to consider tyre pressures for this summer.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what tyre pressures to run for fast street use?

Mmm sounds as though you had these on before winter but never logged any miles so while i don't agree with using a DOT race tire for street use due to never getting it to its optimum operating temps i can only say to try 31-32 cold PSI and see how they feel.
