Sadly, opinion is not fact. One should only deal in facts, particularly in safety-critical matters.

I agree. I've yet to see any facts to prove your opinion. But to make sure we are on the same page these facts (manufacturer specifications) should clearly show that fitting different sizes of tyres on a beetle requires different pressures.

Wow salty Keekster

Same car, same weight, different tyres, different pressures.


Don't just take my car as an example, check google images... most stipulate different pressures for differing wheel/tyres combos.

The tyre pressures at the top are showing that they apply to both the R17 and R18 tyres, i.e. The same pressure for both. Kind of undermines your argument a bit.

You don't think the load ratings affect it?

Perhaps not the best example, point still stands though. You challenged Beetlebank, I'm providing data to back him up.

I see both arguements, and I personally run mine at 19/27psi which I think is about stock but I am aware that car manufacturers always stipulate a pressure with a given tyre spec, as the tyre/wheel combo changes so does the pressure.

Happy to concede that tyre spec has a part to play, which will vary according to weight hence the lower figures differ, but take the 'view' that vehicle weight is the key determinant of pressure. Enjoyed the debate though, better than politics

Would be interesting to get an official line on the matter.
As above, I could happily debate both points till the cows come home but I'd still be none the wiser.
