what tire pressure are you running?

Lately I noticed the ride on the ml350 has been pretty rough, each time going over a porthole, its very bumpy. So I decided to check the tire pressure, I got 33.5psi for both in the front and 35.5 for both in the back (note: these are warm tire psi). I decided to lower them to 31.5 and 32 respectively. So what psi is everyone else using and how is the ride?

ps: sadly, airmatic is not equipped on my parents car. =(

It's depend on the load. You can check the appropriate pressure in the gas/fuel cover. Mine is 32 psi all around

Look at the label inside the fuel door as it is the easiest to read. For my ML320 it is 32 (cold) front and rear. The ride is fine and I try and avoid pot holes.

33/35 cold (20s). Ride is fine. A bit firm in "Sport" mode, but not bad.
