I just put new pilot sports on my e55 and got into a discusssion with the Michelin rep about tire pressure.
He recommends trying different pressures to find one that meets your driving style. He told me to start at 30 front and 32 rear and then in a few days go to 28 and 30 and see how I like it. Tire pressure is a personal preference.
He even said when going on road trips I may want to run 32 front and 34 rear.
Tire pressure should be checked at least monthly.

Most definitly take E55pvan advise and check your tire pressure at least monthly. I just took my car in for what i thought was a warped rotor, it turned out to be ruined tires. Running the lower profile tires with to little tire pressure will cause premature tire failure. I had not checked my tire pressure for honestly , probably like 4 months. Boy did this cost me. They were 8-10 psi under the recommend pressure, and they didnt even look low on pressure.

Had four new tires put on, and now the car drives like new. So take it from my screw up, check your tire pressure.
