SE6A tyres air pressure ?

Post by FrenchNewbie » Fri Mar 01, 2019 12:06 pm

Hello,
What is the proper air pressure for SE6A tyres ?
Owner handbook says : 1.69 kg/sq.cm = 24 lbs/sq.in (= 24 psi = 1,65 bar I suppose ? )
But my tyres are 195/70 R14 and 1,65 bar seems a bit deflated :lol:

What pressure do you advise me with these tyres ?

Thank you
