    Hey everyone! I ordered a set of staggered SVE R350s that come with 275/35 and 305/35 NT05s, and I was wondering what pressure to set the tires to. The tires only list the maximum pressure, and I didn't see any recommended range on the Nitto website. My car is not a daily driver, so I'm not concerned with comfort--just performance and getting the most out of the tire.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    I can't speak about the fronts, but my rear 305/35/19 NT05's seem to like 32-33 psi cold, warming up to around 34 hot. Fast corners and straight line combo. 31 cold works better for straight line but corners not so much.

    For what it's worth, I emailed Nitto and asked them what they recommended, and they said 32 psi front and 36 rear, both cold.

    get a simple heat-gun and see what kind of temps you are getting into the rubber.
