Tire pressure

I need recomendations as to the proper tire pressure for the car Im running 19" 9.5 front and 10.5 rear Ventus tire.

The car will be running the 1/2 mile race w/o me so I need a proper set up either STOCK PSI or Race PSI, any info will be greatly appreciated. Gracias!!

Put money into a tire temperature gauge - try different pressures for your application, atmospheric pressure, ambient temperature, tire load, speed, etc. and adjust the pressure accordingly. The surface temperature needs to be even across its width.

Good assertion but Im running for speed and not times here. It would be useless for me on that part to buy. On other hand the race will take part in and old Air Force runway but thanks for your advise well taken as i stated before I will tape the event via my Samsung III and then post ok

If you are running your tires at speeds that can destroy them if improper pressure is used, maybe its a good investment.
