Aftermarket wheels psi same as stock?

Post by speedyt5 »

I switched out the stock 16” wheels on my s70t5 to the ipd peg replicas at 17” and the matching tires for that wheel. Do I keep the psi at 36 like the car says or is there a different psi I should have the new larger wheels at? Thanks.

All the same.

You may notice a bit harsher ride due to the lower profile if the tire and a lower tire pressure will help that but it will come at a high cost in tire wear and handling.
