    Probably in response to something #42 was rambling on about..

    STOP. USING. DICTATE. And type it out! I think someone uses Dictate(speech mode) when Tweeting from Washington, and that's why his tweets make zero sense or insult millions.

    Y'all need to climb down from those 'stairs' and watch THIS:

    Some tires make more noise when rolling at a given speed than do others. Have to turn volume up more in those cases

    That proves there is one thing more important than the rubber itself: that is suspension geometry and proper alignment.

    Then I must be the only driver out there who likes the pressure at exactly the door sticker or even lower. Not so much for comfort, but lends heft to the steering. Everyone else like the cold pressures higher than sticker for daily(non race) driving, not me! Turns most cars I've driven into twitchy over-steering nervous wrecks! I'm also the only person in the US who doesn't like Daylight Saving - the time we're on from spring into summer. I hate waking up in darkness and going to bed when it's still light out!

    What vehicle and what were recommended door sticker pressures?

    My response to Peter: "Well let me add another qualification to my argument: This is the UNITED STATES - not Germany, or any other nation - and your average suburban soccer mom here does NOT drive anywhere near 100mph, let alone 175, on her appointed rounds. I checked on tirepressure.com for a typical 2017 WRX, and the recommended pressure there shows low 30s PSI cold. Pretty average for a consumer-mobile.  So I do not know how much lower you would drop those cold pressures for driving at racing speeds such as 175mph." Nowhere did I imply a suburban soccer mom would be driving anything at 175mph on errands. Sheez, communicating in here is getting more like Special Ed by the second. Either that or a current White House press briefing with Sara whatserface!

    So were the pressures initially too high or too low?

    Nope, mph. Note the context in which I mentioned it in response to diecast or Peterst.

    I'm in the right-most lane most of the time, except to pass. So if someone is being American and tailgating me in the right-most lane, they can go be American in the lane(s) to the left of me.

    So you, as do I, live in the United States of Anarch-cough-cough!- America. The land of the free, the home of those who don't like to read instructions, follow directions, or obey laws, etc. Well, I do all of those things to the best of my ability, to extract the most usefulness and enjoyment out of products I own, from my car to my audio equipment to my microwave oven, and also out of respect for fellow citizens and to help maintain law and order and the rule law expected in any civilized society.

    1. Tonearm height: I set index ring number low, to correspond to cartridge total height. Tonearm is parallel to an occupied platter. 2. Tracking pressure: 5-10grams above the midrange of specs - mine specifies 1.25 to 1.75 grams, I run 1.6(I have wooden - read: bouncy - floor). 3. Antiskate: Set to index number closes to my tracking force. That would be around #2. My listening experience? Lushhhhh...

    Then you and I might share some DNA! My car recommends 33psi cold, but because of its torsion beam rear end that jumps sideways over moderate bumps like the ass of a F-body '80s Camaro, I run 32 cold in those rears. Does not hurt fuel econ. any, and keeps the Hyundai's butt under control. 😜 You and diecast need to understand something: I'm in the USA, the land of MORE MORE MORE, MAX MAX MAX! Color TVs MAX bright and max color. Tires MAX pressure, music mastered MAX LOUD. That's the culture here, I don't know about where you live. So I naturally assumed that you both ran cold pressures much higher than specs. Me I run things in the middle, or where specified in the INSTRUCTIONS(Americans ever hear of that??) or vehicle placard. So I'm glad to meet someone here who isn't a max-head.
