    That (33 psi) sounds front tyre pressure in cold condition as mentioned above. Does the sticker mention anything that in warm tyres, 0.3 bar (or around 4 psi) higher pressure is required?

    Anyway, I maintain 36 psi in all the wheels and am comfortable with the ride with less bottom-scraping.

    I use 32 all around. More than 32 it is uncomfortable for passengers in the rear seats. This is my observation.

    I had been to Tyre Professional (Blr) and got my Punto filled with 31 psi in front and 30 psi in rear (nitrogen). The drive was smooth, but is there a recommendation for Nitrogen? I usually drive alone. Did wheel balancing/alignment and have the report with me. I was told the camber & Caster alignment is fixed and cant be tuned? Is that correct? If yes, how do I go about the negative figures? Will try to scan the report this week if you ain't clear on what am asking..

    Thanks!!

    Do not mend with the Camber & Caster of the wheel alignment, go as per recommended as this may lead to unusual tyre wear.

    Ravi , but as per manual it should be 31psi in front and 33psi at back for normal drive and 33psi all around when fully laden .. 36 psi seems high
  9. I have 32 PSI nitrogen in all tires .. feel the ride has become bit bumpy can feel it more when am going over a speed breaker etc..I read somewhere Nitrogen should be filed 2-3 psi less than normal air, will do what arulvr has done when i visit the petrol bunk next and post results

    ^^ 33psi is for a cold tyre. If the place from where you fill air is just outside your house, then 33 is fine. If you have to drive 1-2km to fill air, tyre has warmed up and 34/36 is a safe bet.
