    what ever pressure it was on the standard car - it goes by weight of the car not the size of the wheel/tyre

    not even close - the front is heavier than the rear, so the higher pressure should be at the front

    as Geoff has already said - its irrelevant what boots ur running. the pressures should remain constant as the weight of the car doesnt change just cos u whack on new rims.

    Id have thought it should be something along the lines 33/28 unladen & 36/40 laden.... (figures based on an old manual i came across lol)
