    I run 34/33psi front rear, or 34psi all round as I like quite a 'firm' tyre feel, but I think it's meant to be a little lower on the rear, like 31/32psi. It will vary a little depending on the tyre etc.

    Should be fine but a little soft up front, when I finish work I'll check what the sticker in my fuel flap says, that's off a 2005 1.8T FR.

    thanx man, the original tyres are 16 inch though and these are 17s
    why would the front be more than the back?

    Wheel size makes very little difference in small increments, it's mainly done off weight. 1" will use practically the same settings. Hence the front needs higher pressure, as that is where there is most weight (the engine). I tend to run the same front and rear because a) I like the rear tyres to feel firm (this is not always best for grip) and b) I run a 24kg sub, 2 amps and a MDF stealth shelf with 6x9's in (old school, I know), which adds more weight in the back.

    thanx a lot man, i think the sticker said 33 psi front and 30 psi rear? should i do 33 front and 32 back or 34 front and 32 back?
    i do have a 10inch active sub in the back and spare wheel and there are a lot of back roads and pot holes here

    I use 33/34 psi all round. Budget tyres on the back and at the minute Nexen on the front.
