Tyre pressures
#1
Hi,
I have 245 / 60 / 15 BFG's on my 70 Mach 1 (351) I'm trying to get the pressures right and wonder if any one has any suggestions?
I'm running 28lbs all around at the moment.
Cheers
Jeff

Do a burn out, look at the patch. If the outer edges are dark black, raise the pressure till the marks are even all the way across. If the middle is darkest. Let some out until the color is even all the way across. Hope it helps.

What width rims? 245 would be best one a 9 to a 10 inch rim. which will effect the correct air pressure for the rim size with your 245's. I usually ran around 28 to 30 in the rear, and 30 to 32 in the front. I usually tried each one, and drove the car a day or 2 at the different pressures, to find which ones gave the best overall feel in the seat of your pants. But that should get you in the ballpark.
