They seem quite sensitive to pressure changes, but if you start with about 14psi on the front and 24psi on the back, you should be about right.

Would there be any difference in recommended tyre pressure for radials?

I personally have run radials on my cars much harder - around 30psi in both the front and the back....

30 on the front? Must have been an atrocious hard ride. It's not like there's a lot of weight in one of these cars.


I'd say more or less the same pressures for radial tyres.
