Mein Auto: M3 SMG Convertible
Recommended Cabrio Tire Pressure

I am looking for recommendations for the ideal tire pressure for VERY aggressive driving.

Here are my specifics...

I will set the pressure first thing in the morning BEFORE driving at all and the outside temp is about 65 degrees.

I have the 19" factory rims with the Conti tires

The rear tires have about 10% tread left and the fronts 30% (I am waiting for a set of back-ordered PS2's to come in).

NO rain driving
NO passengers
Outside So. CA temps right now are around 70 to 80 degrees

I am looking for maximum cornering ability and minimized under-steer.

Thanks for the help!!!
