    First, I'm not looking for a tire pressure recommendation.

    I just did a track day here in Houston. I think I may have lowered my tire pressures too much.

    Somewhere I read that Michelins like a little higher pressure. Is this correct ????

    Not sure if it's 'correct', but I share that opinion!

    I was running 35 psi hot. Checked straight off the track. I think it should have been around 38 ish

    I'd have to double check my log book, but that's very similar to my view when I first ran the PSS and adjusted pressures into the upper 30s hot front and mid high 30s rear with a staggered setup.

    Assume you are talking about PSCup 2s?

    He is not.

    I also ran the PSS in mid to high 3o’s. Check the rollover marks too.
