Just had my first event of the season (2nd lifetime) on my new BFG G-Force Rivals...and when I say new I mean 50mi on them!

I'm running 205/50R15s on OEM 15x6 10 spokes...and let me just say they were AWESOME!!!

I had ZERO wheel spin/slip on straight ahead accel/braking, ABS kicked in way before the tires lost grip! Lateral grip was fantasic as well...in fact the tires gripped half way down the side wall! (probably should have been running higher pressures in the fronts).

On that note, for you expereinced guys...what tire pressures do you start at (and do you measure cold or hot) and what pressure do you try and maintain through out your runs?
