Tyre pressures

Post  Mike on Fri 04 Jan 2013, 2:10 pm

What is the correct tyre pressures for the Lykamobile?
On the tyre is the maximum 42 PSI Cold.
Too hard will give a hard ride, too soft and you lose grip.
Does any one know what the correct working PSI should be?

Not a clue to the correct pressures but I have settled for 30psi front and 35psi rear. These seem a fair compromise over our very rough local roads.

I have now covered over a thousand miles and the tyres have given no problems.

There is a method for normal car tyres but I don't know how the Lika's tyres compare.

Draw a chalk line across the tyre, roll it across a flat surface. the chalk should be rubber off across 75% of the width if the tyre pressure is correct.
