Those with the factory brembo package, question...

What is the recommended psi for the tires?

Check the sticker on the inside drivers door, should tell you there. I think it's right around 34-35 psi. I've read of people running them as high as 40 for better fuel economy but that's sure to wear down the center fast.

EDIT: Just checked. The Track package comes with the PZero (not nero) 255/40/ZR19's, which the sticker says should be 35 cold. Not sure if that's the same tire that the Brembo cars come with or not.

Thanks. I do not have the brembo package, but switched to the same size wheels and tire size. I figured all 255/40/19 tires would have the same recommended PSI, but not sure?

This is true. I just changed my OEM Pirellis (Thank God) and was religous about keeping them at max recommended. They were worn more in the center than any where else. My new tires I'm going to keep a couple pounds under max recommended.

35.

For reference, I run them at 40 all-round. I used to run 45, but was just a tad too stiff.

Why do you run them 5 PSI higher than recommended?

39 in the front and 37 in the rear, so far have had the best handling at those pressures. It seemed a little loose in the corners at 35 so I raised them up, 40 was a little to much, it was breaking loose on exit from the corners.
V6 Performance package here, and it has the same tires

Fuel economy/wear.

I should bring them down a notch for the cold weather though...
