First of all apologies if anybody else suggested this but I only found posts by 911ts3 suggesting tyre pressures of 30 front and 28 on the rear. So today I tried it and was pleasantly surprised by the difference. There is still a firmness and the same direct feel. But there is a little added softness & composure. I loved the car before but now im really in love.

So thankyou 911ts3 and thankyou to the forum.

Oh and sorry for yet another thread by me.

You're very welcome !
I've been using those sensible pressures on Up's I've had with 17" wheels & 40 profile tyres since 2015 with no detrimental effects.

It really does make quite a difference. Picking it up from the dealer it felt firm. And although I didnt push it with almost 0 miles on it. I felt it would skip about and become quite unsettled on a poorly surfaced corner. Now it feels sporty and grippy with some composure.

Oh and by the way Im following your running in comments. And im a firm believer now the 5dr looks better than the 3dr 😃

Just covered over 400mls up to Scotland and back. Really impressed with this car. It has no problem with long distance. Tyre pressures are just perfect too.
