17' tires question

Hey guys,
I JUST BOUGHT MY 17' wheels YO. They're PCW. Anywho, about to go wash my car and then take som pics, BUT my question is....

The tire pressure, should it be different than what i had in the 15' hubcaps, or what it says in the manual??
Tha manual states 31 psi. I always had around 31-32.5.
Should i do the same for the 17 inch tires?
thanks boys and girls..

I run 35psi in all four tires.. (225/47/17 front and 245/40/17 back)

I've tried some different pressures; but, always come back to 35psi..

Find out the proper recomended PSI from the manufacturer. There is a reason why they have it.

size

tell us what size tires your 17's are.

I run 33f/35r on my current 225/45/17 f and 245/40/17 r. But I'm still playing around with those numbers. Oh..and mine are Michelin Pilot Sports. We're talking street use right?
