    Icon6 GTi180 - Tyre Pressure

    OK - easy question for all you experts

    As per the placard, we are looking at "2 BAR" worth of tyre pressure. Per this website conversion, would I be correct in stating only 29psi?!?

    I have never had such low profiles thus not sure and not in beleif! Usually ran the Mi16 @ 36-38psi (PILOX HX) depending on what road I was driving.

    Any recommendation greatly appreciated also!

    Cheers

    I checked this when I got mine. They should be run at 35psi. I ran them at 37. The ride is a bit harder, but there is a very noticeable difference in steering feel & grip. I also got reasonable life out of mine (compared to some other 180 horror stories i've heard) & they wore evenly.

    Try low 30s for comfort and high 30s for responsiveness.

    I guess then 140+ on suggested 45 isn't bad either
    Eitherways, that's going insane not to mention the hazards and dangers

    Just this evening, I put up the pressure up to 37psi. Ok, it is on the harder side, but the car handles like a treat

    Anyone else got Michelin Pilot Precedas on the 180? I've found they don't inspire as much confidence as the Pirellis. I don't think it's because of a lack of grip, but rather a lack of feel. They certainly drop the road noise a few decibels & the ride is nicer. I just don't get as much feedback & the steering doesn't feel quite as quick.

    Mac, I heard the Precedas weren't that crash hot and they are expensive in my opinion. Pity Michelin don't bring the Exalto to OZ. What are RCS owners doing for replacement when the Exaltos are shot.
