Thanks for that explanation, Nige; I thought nitrogen in my car tyres was just another "Emperor's New Clothes" con trick when offered it at Kwik-Shit some time ago!  ::)

It is on an ordinary road-going car tyre. But it is a good small cure for wallet overthickness.

I can find plenty of cures for that condition without Kwik-Shit's help!

Just another thought I believe recommended pressure is for a cold tyre so we are all driving overinflated.  :'(

Don't get too hung up on it, though. The manufacturer recommendation will only be valid for the tyre they were using at the time, to meet the objectives they had at the time. It pays to experiment a little, especially if you have fitted a new brand of tyre, and based on how the car drives and how the tyres are wearing. :y

or .... the manufacturer actually knows what they are doing and have taken into account the change in pressure as the tyre warms up ... ??? Given that it is extremely difficult to check the tyres whilst actually moving ......    :) (unless you have a temperature reading TPMS fitted)  :)
