    just got some new Yokohama Advan blah blah tires on the Miata. Thought the car was riding a little bit rough after getting it home from the shop and checked the tire pressure. They had set it at 35, so that probably explains that. The book says 26 pounds for stock tires, but these are not stock tires… They are 205/50 R15’s. I lowered it down to 30 psi, but I’m not sure where to go from there. I went to the Yokohama website to look for some assistance there but they don’t even have a contact thing on their main splash page that I can see… Anyone with experience on these?

    I like 30ish on my 205/40 15s. I put them up to 40ish for the autocross last year and then forgot to lower them for a couple weeks, did improve the ride significantly. But I do drive somewhat spiritedly, so sidewall flex shows up pretty quickly.

    <p style=”text-align: center;”>Thanks for the response, Dave. I’m not looking to be a racecar driver, I’m just commuting and looking at the countryside in this thing right now. I think I will start at 30 and then perhaps work my way down a psi or two to see where things end up feeling good, then? Thanks for the response!</p>

    27-28 for driving around is a good place to be…depends on your driving style and other suspension mods…or lack of mods
