E46 coupe

Hello all i have a 2001 E46 330 Ci with 19inch alloys running 235/35/19 tyers all round, does any one have any idears on a good pressure for them as the the guys who fitted them recommended 38 psi for the fronts and 46 psi for the backs. This is a tad hard and the back keeps on breaking loose. any idears

its one of those things you just have to play with... i mean you'll get better straight line traction with a softer psi in there but you are going to roll your tires more in the corners and it wont be as responsive... i think your best bet would be a stage 3 weight reduction on your right foot...

with the setup you have, i would run +4 pounds over what the tire placard in the door states for your original wheel size. and that is cold pressure.
