eureka!!!


i have found it!!!!


for 1.00$ (US) i have noticably increased the performance/handling of my slawd


and i mean i can tell the difference....... immendiately



four quarters in the air-filler-pump at the local fillin' station....

and my car went from 24lbs (measured cold, and then 25±lbs hot) to 34 pounds.....

the sags are gone on the sidewalls, and it feels like a sport tuned suspension!! :4:

i am disappointed in nissan for allowing me to drive off with the pressure some 9lbs lower than oem recommended....

just to clarify, i used my spensive copper-laden tire gauge (with bleed-off) that i use on my bikes..... and then double checked it against them.... spot on (within a lb of last cold setting)

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT... Four quarters and (oh yeah get a decent pressure gauge... the bigger the better) improved handling.....

who knows... maybe the SE 'sport tuned' setup is jus that...... 9lbs more pressure in the tires....:rolleyes: :4:

I learned long time ago that increase in tires pressure by 10% and regular check of it will actually improve handling as well as tires life.......learned it from Bob Jones, a race driver, now owner of large tires chain.

It's important to check pressures often, especially as the outside temperatures start to drop. Don't quote me on this but I think that the pressure in your tire drops about 3 psi for every 10 degrees drop in outside temp. So here in the upper midwest, I add air in the fall and winter, and reduce the pressure in spring and summer.
