Hello, I have a 1995 750iL with Pirelli Pzero 255/35/20 front and 285/35/20 rear. When I bought them from the original owner, he said to inflate all four tires to 40psi. I'm thinking that the rears should have a higher psi than the fronts? What do you guys think? I also have a sound system that adds about 80lbs to the car. The wheels are Hartage 14-spoke. Thanks.

1994 325i Sports package, 15" BBS Chrome 5 spoke, Xenon bulbs (mine)

1995 750iL 20" Harge Chrome Nova 7, lowering, Ac Schnitzer Front, back, exhaust tips, Clear corners, Painted all white, sound system (dad's, 3 ft away from mine in the garage)

The tires state a max PSI of 50...that's a bit high. It varies from car to car. The PSI I would need in my tires would be a lot higher in a 4600lb BMW than a 3600lb Murcielago (which also has these tires). The rear should also be higher than the fronts. So what do you guys think they should be?
