halfrican Posted June 23, 2005 Report Share Posted June 23, 2005 Hello All, Got some new tires for my 2001 STS today, and was curious about the end results. The dealer I went to was very knowledgable and helpful about my choices and preferences. He recommended a tire based on my priorities and gave me what I felt to be a very fare price. I'm not going to get into the brand name/model of the tire debate as I know it will extend this tread longer than necessary, and it's not really the issue I'm concerned about. After the dealer finished the install and assured me that the balance was "right on" using the Hunter 9700 road force balancer. I drove home on the quietest most vibratition free trip I have ever had in my STS! Now to the issue I concerned with, after I got home I checked the tire pressure and found that it was very high (near 40psi) at each tire, while the door sticker on my car specifically calls for 30psi cold. I let the tires cool and still found the pressure at almost 38psi. Should I lower the pressure to 30psi as called for on the door, or will this require that the tires be re-balanced? If I leave it at the higher pressure won't I be sacrificing ride quality and handling? Thanks, Half Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
