Tyre peressure 87W tyres

After discussions in this forum about the right pressure for 215/45-17 tyres with 87W rating, I experimented with different pressures. 38 psi front and 34 psi rear are the best ! not only that the response of the steering is better but also mileage, I have a 10 % improvement ! this may also partly be caused by the new V-power Shell petrol.
The forum has proven itself again as a valuable means of gathering knowledge. Thanks guys !!

p.s. I have Pirelli P7000 tyres, maybe forum members using other brands in the same size have different experiences

38psi Front and 34 psi rear is a good combination on a 147 with 215/45-17

Wouldn't optimum tyre pressures differ for each tyre?
