17" Correct psi?
« on: February 03, 2015, 01:46:28 PM »
What is the correct psi for the 17" wheels? I usually put around 34 in?

2.3 bar Front
2.1 bar Rear

When your tyres are particularly warm (after a long drive or in the height of summer)

Add 0.3psi, so;

2.6 bar Front
2.4 bar Rear

For my 18" Esseesse wheels this is the correct pressure, I assume the 17s are the exact same or slightly less.

Esseesse
Front - 2.5 bar (36 psi)
Rear - 2.3 bar (33 psi)

Going by the ratings for my Esseesse wheels I suggest these pressures for your 17s.

Standard Abarth
Front - 2.4 bar (35 psi)
Rear - 2.2 bar(32 psi)
