tire pressures for the autobahn?

I apologize if this question has been asked too many times on here. I tried to do a search but I can't seem to find the thread where this was already discussed. Since I just got my summer wheels/tires swapped out I want to get some opinions on what the proper inflation should be. Most of my driving will be high speed on the autobahn so I believe I should run a slightly higher pressure than norm. Any suggestions? Tires are PS3s 235/40s and 255/35. Any suggestions? thanks

I just run my tire pressures to MAX Load, on the door jam. I usually run 2.3bar up front and 2.8bar in back.

Thanks. Do you still have the PS2s or did you get the PS3s?

I am running PS3's... that is all they sell over here. Btw... I was over at my German tire dealer last week. Right now the rear PS3's (255's)are only 225 euros. Normally they are almost 290 euros. But once the summer tire push starts in a week or so... those prices will go up! Now's the time to get 'em.

Are the PS3's available in 225-18 and 255-18 in Germany? In Belgium only 225's for 18". More possibilities in the 19"'s.

I bought my PS3's last year in 225/255's sizes in Germany. See my review...

Is it possible that the PS3's are cheaper than the PS2's?
