    New Michelin PS3'S

    Hi all, I've just treated my RB182 to a full set of 4 new Michelin PS3's. The tyre place put 37 psi in the fronts & 33 psi in the backs. I think this is way too high. I usually put 33 psi in the fronts & 30 psi in the backs. What pressures do you guys put in? The tyres are 205/45 x 16. Cheers
