corsa III pressures

i know this has been beat to death, im curious wat you corsa III guys are running for pressure, ive been running

34f 36 rear--hot so its
31f 33 rear--cold,

this is wat i was told by a pirelli rep, but when he said 34f 36r he didnt specify hot or cold so which is it, i know track pressures will be lower --like 32f 34r but he never specified hot or cold ----- fack

ive been hardcore PP for along time, but i decided to try some of these, and all i can say is wow, traction ----big time traction---

turn in is great without falling in.
breaking in a turn is even better with all the traction
they seem to not wear at all
im using a 180/55 because they decided to go out of stock on 190/55 and i dont think ill change this is the very first set of pirellis ive ever owned

Your starting pressure will depend on how you ride.
For street use on the SCIII, 32 rear, 34 front cold, are good pressures.

For the track, it'll depend on how hard you load them. 29 rear, 31 front is a good starting point, with a 4-6 psi. grow when hot.

Why would you run a higher pressure in the rear tire?

same pressures i run, but if i'm doing a long highway cruise, i'll bump the rear pressure up to 35-36.

and be carefull running 31f/29r on the street on cold tires, the front case seems to be a little soft, so it will cause some sidewall flex under turning loads causing the front end to feel a little unstable.
