    Hey all I have 17x9 rims with 250/45 tires up front and 17x10.5in rims with 315/35's out back, the tires are Nitto NT555 street tires btw. I was curious as to how much psi should I run on the front tires and rear tires? Also should I just leave the tires where they were placed or should I at least move them side to side to get some rotation out of them?

    Whatever makes you happy, hooks, and wears the best depending on your alignment.

    I run 35 in the rear on highway, 20 DD in town.

    I've found my NT555s wear the best with 36 psi in them. I have 275/40-17s on 17x9s. That 36 is also about as good as it gets with traction, as well.

    Ok thanks guys, I guess I will go with the 32psi on all 4. The tires have 5000 miles on them so far and seem to be wearing fine. Im trying to decide if I should just go to 10,000 miles and leave them were they are or rotate them if I can. Also I seem to be able to break the 315's way to easy on my car, I thought I would get better traction with them... Guess I need to learn how to launch correctly lol something still need to work on...

    Launching has to do with sidewall and compound, not width. I can cut a 1.4 60ft on a 295/40-17 drag radial at the track and get it to dead hook on the street at over 800rwhp with the stock driveline. My 315-18's just suck on the street, but look good. It's a balance. An auto makes launching the car infintly easier.
