Idea Tyre Pressure - Massive Difference

Had the GTV for a few weeks now, but only just got round to checking the tyre pressures.

when checked it was 31 front, 32 rear! Pumped them up to the 39F 36R and without a shadow of doubt the handling has improved significantly.

Corners better, feels more planted to road and where the car was a little twitchy before and not really giving me confidence with traction, it is all a lot better.

CHECK YOUR PRESSURES. Makes a huge difference
