Suspension settings and tire psi

I have the pss10's installed along with 19 inch wheels on my car..ive played around with different settings and pressures for a while now, but never found the ideal setup. any advice on pss10 settings and tire pressures to make the ride ideal? thanks

6(f)/5(r) for me........I'm still trying to play with the settings as well.......That's where I'm at right now. Reason why I went with that setting was because I read somewhere that setting the front a bit more stiff than the rear is to maintain better grip/traction?

Before that setting, I had mine set to 5(f)/7(r). Couldn't really tell the difference as far as grip/traction goes, probably because I don't push the car hard enough, lol. I think I'm gonna see how it feels on 10(f)/10(r) just for kicks........

yeah right now im 5 front and 6 rear and 35psi all around on my General Exclaims per the manual. The Generals definently lack in the dry traction area cause im always slipping least the slip light on the dash says so, and once i put the downpipes on next week im sure it will get worse, so ill be looking for tires soon hahaha

yeah having the pss10's are a double edge sword, its nice to have the availibility to change settings, just got so many options it takes forever to figure out whats best. I havent read that about the front stiffer, but ill gladly give it a try and see how it feels. yeah ive yet to try 10/10, i bet it will be hard as hell, feel like the tires are square hahaha
