On the street I run them just like any other tire. What the manufacture says.

I run mine at 28 PSI. Anything higher and usually the tire will wear uneven, plus they hook great around 28 - 30 PSI. At the track I bring them down to 15 and they are like glue. This is for a 315/35/17 drag radial on 10.5 Cobra R's.

30 psi. Anything higher and the center wears out faster than the sides. At the track I can't go lower than 18 psi as the wheel will spin inside the tire.

All of this depends on the weight of your car, the amount of HP/TQ you are producing and the outside tempurature.

I run 20 psi daily driving. Works fine and hooks up like a mother.

24-25psi on the street - anything higher, and the center began to wear quickly. 17psi on the track - low 1.80s.

Take it easy!

With Nitto 275/40/R17 on a stock 17X8 Cobra wheel I ran around 24-26lbs on the street and track. That is running 1.7-1.8 60' times launching at 4k in a 97 Cobra with 4:10's and a few other stuff. I also got close to 12k miles out of them in that form.
