I run 36-38 on my Saab and Volvo on the WRG2s. I am not sure what the safety issue would be. They completely tear it up in the snow. I am getting a set for my '13 this week to replace the Conti's which I will run in the summer.Hello gurus! I've got a quick question about tire pressure for my Nokian WR-G2 SUV tires on my 2010 Outback. The dealer recommendation was 32/30 (what I used on my stock Contis). With the new Nokians, though, I've noticed worse gas mileage at that pressure (21-23 mpg instead of 23-26 mpg).
I've got a big trip from Central Valley, CA to Seattle, WA coming up and I was thinking of upping the tire pressure to improve mileage. I don't want to compromise safety, though, considering the gnarly Oregon passes I'll be going through.
Any recommendations on what to up the tire pressure to? 38/36? Or should I just leave it be...
I run the WRs all year round on the Volvo in the Northeast and get 50k miles out of them.
