2004 996 18" street tire pressures

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model: 40th Anniversary 911; Year: 2004; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 1550;

Cold pressures front/back are spec'd 36/44. I noted that the GT3 pressures are 32/39 - for slightly wider tires. Ride quality is a bit stiff when using the factory spec 36/44. All my research for pressures on this site seems to suggest trying lower pressures (by about 2 - 4psi per wheel f/r) if you track the car.I understand the Porsche stipulation regarding adhering to the 36/44 spec, but Chicago roads are not as smooth as Der Autobahn, and I am looking for some "street" advice on whether using the GT3 cold spec's would apply to my 225/285 set up, vs. the GT3 235/295 set up.Thanks.Region: ChicagoTotal Mileage: 1550Car Use: Street use only
