New Tires... Finally

So after spending 2.5 years auto-xing on daily driven all season tires (a set of continental conti-extreme contacts and a set of pirelli p-zero nero m+s's) I should be running on the 28th with a set of Hankook RS-2's. Any suggestions on starting pressures? The contis liked 42f 38r and the pirellis like 32f 34r (no that's not a typo, weird, I know) so I (pending other suggestions) will start out at 40f 40r and adjust from there. Also anyone know what the optimum temp on the RS-2's is (the pirellis were around 110 summer tires should be higher) and if they'll need sprayed? And finally any guesses as to how many seconds I'll pick up over a set of corded contis? Thanks guys


Spencer
