Can anyone tell me the correct pressures please as it is not on the label on my car as it did not come with 18" wheels originally.

Cheers,
Kev

It does indeed note them there but not for 18" wheels as my car did not come with them and I guess they were not an option in 2001.

They may well be the same pressures as the 17" wheels should be but I just want to make sure.

In fact, if someone with a facelift roadster with 18" wheels (as standard) could have a look for me please and make a note of the part number of the sticker too, I'll order up a replacement sticker for my petrol flap :)

Think it's something like 36 front, 38 rear 40 if loaded, but am sure someone will have a look for you to be sure.

OK, thanks Steve - looks like tyre size is irrelevant to the pressure as I'm sure that is what it says for 17" too.

36 seems a bit much to me, always put 31 in.
On the front?

Yes, will give a harder rise too.

However, I did run my previous set of tyres at 30/31 PSI all round and the rears were fine but the fronts got very worn on the outside.

A few more PSI would have given more even wear across the tyre width.

Would also stiffen-up side walls and help prevent pot-hole induced dents.
