Specified tyre pressure for 17 inch rims?

Hey guys,

My prelude came stock with 16" wheels and as such, I only have the correct tyre pressures for those listed on my door jamb tyre label.

I now installed some nicer 17's and I was wondering if anyone here has a tyre label with data for 17 inch tyres?
I presume motegi spec preludes will have them, since they came factory equipped with 17" wheels

Cheers :thumbup:

I used 32 psi, front and rear, when I had my 5th on motegis (came with 16s as standard)

Same as ek9sid, around 2.2 bar. Normally I pressure the fronts to 2.3 bar due to the majority of the weight on the front of the car but I can't really say that I've noticed any difference.

I’ve always put in 30 all round. Happy without that.
