Ask paz as he has Alloys and a Saxo too.

But the pressure thing as best as i know it is set to carry the weight of your car.

The tyre size is not the question but the weight on the tyre to support it hence "Pressure" !

The tyre pressure stated on the side of the tyre is the MAXIMUM permitted pressure. DO NOT INFLATE AND DRIVE YOUR CAR ON THIS PRESSURE SETTING. The maximum pressure is stated on the side of the tyre safety reasons and the only time this amount of pressure should be in a tyre is when it is being fitted to a wheel to "Seat the Beads" (That loud pop noise you hear when a tyre is being fitted)

I would follow the settings for the bottom tyre size as a guide because it is the closest to the size you have fitted.



Because Citroen dont make that size wheel for your car they dont list a tyre pressure for it, this is one of the problems with putting larger alloys on your car than what the vehicle manufactre recommends.

I last word of advice, keep a weekly check on how the tyre is wearing, if both edges are wearing faster than the middle this indicates the tyre is under inflated and if the middle is wearing faster than the outer edges this would indercate that tyre is over inflated. Eneven wear on one of the edges of the tyre would indercate either a wheel alignment problem or a steering / suspension problem.....

Putting larger wheels on your car also adjusts the CAMBER / CASTOR angles of the suspension geometry which on allot of cars is not adjustable..... <img border="0" alt="[cwnuts]" title="" src="graemlins/cwemotions051.gif" />
