    SE2 alloy tyre pressure

    just got some SE2 alloys for my hatch. They're on 215/40/17 eagle F1's. Anyone know what pressure these should be at?

    cheers

    whatever ur manual states for your car

    tyre pressures are dictated by the weight of the car they are on - not the actual tyre or alloy size

    Tire pressures are not the same across the board.. Not sure where you will find out though. My manual has differing pressure across size of rims for the same car.
    I no longer have a Sig
