Z3 tire pressure question
 
BMW recommends 32psi... Max pressure for my tires is 50psi. Has anyone gone higher than the recommended 32psi and if so, what pressure have you found provided you with the best ride and control? Thanks.

much depends on a number of things..........tire size,temps ,type of driving etc. tire psi 101 a few pounds either way is all i would go. lower psi = smoother ride,less agile steering,worse mpg........higher psi=harder ride,high speed stable,better mpg
