Tyre pressures....

Even wondering what the optimum tyre pressure (in psi) is for a GTR?

I've just put in 29 psi all round and the car feels ok (aside from them or ribose run flats)...but I was wondering if there is a general consensus for the best setup for road use

On a different note is it possible to change the in car display to read in psi rather than kpa?

Thanks!

On the runflats it's 29psi.
Yes, you can change the display to psi.
Did mine as soon as I got it... over a year ago so can't remember how, but it'll be in the handbook.

32 with mpss i find is a good pressure, did try 35 cold when first got them, but were too bouncy.. Now when they are warm, 34, is nice ideal pressure.
Changing psi/bar :
Can be done two ways, one via the mfd display under info, tyre pressures, the units on the bottom right.
2nd is via the units on the speedo press the the two buttons to the right of the speedo surround..

I have a MY10 and can change settings.

Easiest way I find is:

1.) Press 'Info'
2.) Press 'Tyre Pressure settings'

This displays the 4 wheels and tyre current pressures.

3.) Press button saying 'display settings' KPA / PSI / BAR or whatever the 4th option is.
