Tyre Pressures for Extra Load tyres?

Just had 4 new Goodyear F1 Asymmetrics fitted (215x45x17) and they are 91Y (extra load), will this make any difference to the tyre pressures required? I tend to run my tyres on the high side of recommended at 2.5 bar, any thoughts?

Re: Tyre Pressures for Extra Load tyres?

yes, part of their design is to require higher pressures to obtain the 'high load index' rating.

36~40psi/2.5~2.7bar is probably what you need.
