Does anyone here run these tyres on the rear, what kind of pressures are you running them at? They are on the rear of the car and are fairly stretched over the wheel.

Thanks, Phil

I wasn't sure about what pressure to run them, the wheels are 10" wide if this makes any difference.

well tires usually have a max psi written on them. Id stay maybe 5-10 psi below that. If your taking your car somewhere to say go drag racing, youd want the rears pretty low psi. If your making a long highway trip, get the pressures close to that max psi.

The pressures for this car are 2.7 bar at front & 2.9 Bar at rear.
Fully laden, I think is 2.9 bar front & 3.5 bar rear or up to and including.

Running below the lowest figure is not recommended for optimum handling & tyre wear etc.
