18" tires pressure setting
 
I am just wondering what pressure setting everyone is using for the oem 18" pirelli tires. I have it set to the door sticker, 32 lbs front and 34 rear and the handling is a bit sluggish. I am thinking about increseing it a couple of pounds. Anyone in here running higher than factory recommanded tire pressure? if so, what are the results? Thank You.

Does the steering or handling change at all with the +2 psi setting?

Yes, to a small amount, but, like the ride, nowhere near what DHP and Sports mode do.

I also found the factory pressure a bit soft and I now too run at +2 and it's much better!
