Thread: Pressures

  1. #1


    Hi - what are your views on best tyre pressures to run on a 72S ?

    I've just bought my first of one - stock other than being slightly lowered at the rear - and it was running 31 at both the front and rear.

    Factory settings (as listed on the decals) best ? I'll be re-setting it to the original ride height soon.

    Andy...I run the "above 125" presures...under the theory that you never know when you might want to cruise that fast.
    Actually, just seem to get a better feel with the slightly higher pressures, and the rears should be a higher pressure than the fronts. Use the engine compartment sticker as a guidline, and you should be okay. Congrats on your '72S..
    I'm more than a bit prejudiced in favor of that particular year BTW, in the long ago auto-x days, when XWX MIchelens were the tire of choice for most, pressures were really pumped up...45 or so in the rear, 42 front...but NOT for street use, just auto-x. Haven't a clue what the hotshoes of today do, but I'm hoping some of them will weigh in.

    I usually run 29F and 31R on the street, measured cold. For autox on street tires, I bump that up to 32F & 36R.

    For race tires it's a whole 'nother ball game, and depends on the type of tire you're running and the type of event.
