Tire pressure ?

I keep my tire pressure on my aftermarket wheels/tires at 34 psi since it's the recommended stock level.

The alignment shop said I should keep them at 41 psi which I thought was crazy plus the car rides horribly at that psi.

What gives?

dont worry about what they say. keep your 34psi.

its amazing how much you dont have to know about cars to work on them. and then have the balls to give advise.

Hopefully they don't do alignments as bad as they provide tire pressure advise.

Some people think because on the side of the tire it says the max inflation,, they think that's what it should be.
