Tire pressure

Hi Gary
Just pick up the Pilot Sport 2 ZP's for my 335i xdrive, replaced the bridgestone potenzas 050. Find the Michelin's feel a little 'soggy' in the corners, what would you recommend in terms of tire pressure, temps here 75-95 and I rarely drive over 100 mph.

haha, I like how you wrote this thread directly to Gary :P

The Michelin's might feel a bit soggy since you're coming from run-flats to non-run flats.

When going to brand new, full tread depth tires there is a bit more tread squirm which will get better over time. Use the same factory air pressures.
