    Would have to be a hell of a difference in pressure wouldn't it? I've got 32 all round in mine. Have you checked the tracking since buying it? Welcome to the bus club BTW.

    Niether (sp), Kwik fit are crap and vauxhall will charge a fortune. Your better off getting a good garage to do it.

    they are gona wear quickly in the centre of the tyre mate, knocking them out early and needing replacement. i bet it isnt good for road holding either... or fillings

    Believe it or not, the handbook does say 42psi for a fully laden bus!

    I'd have to agree tho, it ain't gonna do yer back a lot of good!!
