the tires are probably 195/65/14's if he has the correct tires on them....i believe the proper psi according to the manual is 30psi in the front and 32 in the back

Quit talkin like you know shit and get a G1 FIRST so you can actually DRIVE a car with different tire pressures!

29F/32R is the man. recommendation. This setup will produce understeer. To get the most neutral hanlding, I use anything between 31-32 F/R.

The best thing is to drive the car around and just change the tire pressures based on how you drive. Different tire sizes require different tire pressures. Same goes for driving styles.

1 or 2 PSI doesnt make much of a diff with 14's man..

btw, I hope you increased your PSI now that u got 17's. apparently its 2psi per inch increase over your stock diameter. so you should be runing like 36/38
