Wet/Damp Tire Pressures

Recommended Posts

Don't tell Scott but I was wondering what pressures people used on the 211 for a damp track.

Started off at Abingdon with a fairly soggy airfield and had "fun" with the car until it dried out.

Can't seem to get any concensus as some people claimed to reduce them to get more temp but other said to increases them to clear the water.

Any views?

Its all about specific conditions.

If its greasey i.e no standing water, it wont realy make much difference what you do because getting any tempature worth considering is virtually impossible. So running them at lower pressure offers some extra give in the side wall since the compound wont work and allows you very slightly more compliance. When its properly wet, i.e. you have puddles and its still raining, then you will need to go up on the pressures to help reduce the contact area and concentrate the cars weight.

Frankly though 48's are never going to be any good in the wet, no mater what you do to them.
