pressures

  1. Wheels & Tires EP3
    How exactly do you know what tire pressure to run when you have rims and tires larger than stock on the usdm ep3? Is there some sort of mathematical relationship? I have 17x7 rims (http://www.tenzoracingsports.eu/felgi.html#dc5v1) and 225/45ZR17 XL (94Y) tires ( Hankook Ventus V12 Evo (K110 )...
  2. Turbo RSX
    Well guys my car has been running over 2 years and 40,000 miles turbocharged and I'm JUST starting to show it's first issue, I was playing around with a buddy on the highway when I noticed my boost pressure fluctuating. Usually on the gauge it was between 11-12psi but I noticed it was lingering...
  3. Problems & Solutions EP3
    anyone know what they are for k24's and k20's?
  4. General RSX Discussion
    So its my understanding that they tag on the door is to be followed with stock size rims and tires. So what do you do with a larger rim shorter sidewall configuration? I'm asking because this started a fight at a local tire shop.
  5. Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    i know this is the suspension forum but my question pertains to handling so i figured this is the place to ask. I'm running the a spec suspension w/ 17x7.5 dunlop direzza z1 star specs. most of my driving is in th city but i like to hit the canyons occasionally. I've been told that more...
  6. Auto X & Road Racing
    I'm doing my first autocross since i picked up my Ventus RS2s this weekend. I was just wondering if anybody else who ran these had some guidance on good tire pressures to start with for these tires. Thanks in advance.
  7. Auto X & Road Racing
    To all: I can see the flames coming, but hell I will ask. Have an HPDE coming up on a new set of tires. Last event I had stock rims with a set of P Zero Neros M+S (first event and I knew I would trash tires-which I did; but it was for the learning experience). Since then I have purchased a...
  8. Auto X & Road Racing
    anyone who could help me out here? stock suspention on an '05 type S. -2degrees camber up front and -1degree in the rear. Road race pressures needed. Any starting set-up ideas are appreciated
  9. Auto X & Road Racing
    s it necessary to break in or heat cycle the falken rt-615's when new? or will just some normal highway driving be enough? i would figure the auto x forum would know more about this than the regular tire forum. also, to anyone using the falkens: what pressures are you running for everyday...
  10. Auto X & Road Racing
    I'm going to my first track day on Aug 2nd at Pacific Raceways (formerly SIR). I was wondering what tire pressures you track guys run. I've read alot of autox recommended pressures, just not sure if the same applies to track/hot lapping? I'm running the stock oem craptacular michelins. What...
  11. Auto X & Road Racing
    What kind of pressures do you guys run with R-Compound tires? I'll be using some 205/55/16 RA-1's. I'd like a setup that will promote neutral to slight oversteer.
  12. Auto X & Road Racing
    This summer, I'll be picking up some t1-s's, but for the autox's until then, what tire pressures work best for the stock michelin's? Higher in the back than the front?
  13. Auto X & Road Racing
    Does anyone have any advice on tire pressures for stock size Falken Azenis Sports on a bone stock RSX-S? If you guys who are running 215/45-16's have any suggestions, I could use them as a starting point. It is incredible how much more grip these tires have over my Yoko AVS ES100's. I can't...
  14. Auto X & Road Racing
    Okay, I'm somewhat confused. A lot of you seem to be dialing in 39 tire pressure cold @ the front, and low 30s cold @ the rear (like 34). It'd seem to me that to get a little oversteer out of the RSX along with a stiff sway bar you'd want to SWITCH those #s. That is, higher tire pressure...
