Tire pressure question

What psi for the supercorsa's 120/70/17 and 180/55/17. I will be doing high speed runs with them and some street riding. I've never used these before so just checking to see if anything is different.

THERE ARE ONLY THREE SPEEDS, FAST, VERY FAST, AND OH SHIT!

I have ran the Supercorsas on the race track and the pressures I used were 29 front and 30 rear. I got 2 trackday weekends out of them but that was at Barber Motorsports park and that track isn't too hard on tires. I would say that for the riding you want to do try to go a little higher with your pressures. Say 35 front and rear. That will probably be a good compromise for wear and grip.

Nope, Really just for Maxton " top speed runs", and maybe a few street rides.

gotcha, well since its top speed runs you'd obviously want higher pressures to = less resistance but i don't know that i'd go much higher than the 35 cold PSI madav8tr mentioned.

thanks, The last time I had the shinko 003's front and rear, and ran 42 in both. I was just wondering if these were any different, They seem way way softer all around.
