What's a good Tire Pressure?

I have a 2000 civic. I hear the recommended tire pressure is 30 psi front and 29 psi back. What do you guys recommend ? I'm very curious as everyone has different opinions. I'm sitting at about 30 right now, but I'm thinking about upping the front to 34 psi, and the rear at 32 psi. What do you think? The max tire pressure is 44 psi so im pretty sure 34 is fine.

Re: What's a good Tire Pressure?

winter is coming, so keep at 30 to maintain a little more grip.
I guess you could up to 36 without starting having the center of the tire to wear prematurely. I did not have the issue because when i used 40 PSI for track/autoX conditions, the tire shoulders got wore down much more due to cornering.

Re: What's a good Tire Pressure?

i normally go 34psi for mileage altho its a bit bumpy with aftermarket mods. 32 would be better for ride quality. i find that at 35psi and above, handling becomes very scary.
