    will depend on what size tyres you've fitted?

    Has nothing to do with the tyre size, it's down to the weight of the car (which us engine related).

    It'll be the same PSI what ever size tyres wheels you put on your car.

    Not sure what engine you have, but it'll be about 32 front, 28 rear.

    Indeed, with it being an LS I'm assuming it's a 1.4 or a 1.6. Mainly because I don't know of higher engines in the LS
