    Tire Pressure

    Hello,
    I noticed something this week, My Owners Manual says my tire pressures should be 42 psi. in the back and 36 psi in the front, I have Michelin Pilot tires and they a both are labeled 42 psi. Do I stick to what the tire says or the Owners Manual?
    Thank you in advance for your reply's.

     I don't have Michelins, never have, but all four sets of tires I've had I always set the front at 38 cold, and the rear at 43 cold.  No strange wear issues on any except the OEM front.

    As far as I am aware, the ( Cold ) Pressures specified on a tire / tyre wall, are the
    Maximum pressures at which the tire / can safely support it's maximum load rating.

    The ( Cold ) pressures specified by the vehicle manufacturer in the Handbook, or in the case of Car etc
    on a plate or sticker usually found on one of the door pillars, are the recommended pressures
    to acheive the best fuel economy and tire / tyre wear for that particular vehicle.

    Michelin's web site states :
    "Stick to the tyre pressures recommended by the manufacturer."

    With the Trophy front tire / tyre, Triumph recommend 36 PSI,
    so it could technically be increased if required up to 42 PSI.

    Several Members have commented previously that running a few PSI higher
    seems to reduce the amount of "Scalloping" type wear on the front tire / tyre
    without any appreciable deterioration in handling.

    The Rear Tire / Tyre is specified by Triumph as 42 PSI,
    and if it is marked with the same pressure then I wouldn't exceed it.

    Cheers  :821:
