style 5 rims



I picked up a set of style 5 rims for my e34 and just want to know what tire pressure I should be running. I have michelin pilot sport a/s and the tires say a max tire pressure of 51psi.

thanks

It also depends on the ride you are after, how you drive, and what tires you got. I think i run like 36-40.

ive been playing around with mine between ( 33 - 40 ), trying to loose a 80-90km shimmy,but i think it may be due to the shitty nexen's up front. at the moment i think there all at 33.5psi, which im going to bring back up... not on style 5's mind you.

its called the 50mph shimmy and that is most probably due to the control arms. but there are a multitude of other possible causes

shimmy can also be caused by unbalanced tires, and warped rotors.
