If it's a a mk5 and has Dunlop Sport Max fitted, I find them twitchy on motorways at the recommended pressure 40 psi, I upped mine to 43 psi which has helped, their fairly quiet though.

Come renewal time I'll be going for PS2's

I have the Michelin Pilots on mine. These are the tyres that UK R32s had from the factory, I understand. Does anyone know what the pressures (in PSi) should be on them?

Mine came with Dunlops and the presser is 40 psi (not full load) I run mine at 43psi as mentioned above, which helps my Dunlops, not saying it's good for every type though.

For future reference, the required tyre pressures for the R32 (from the fuel filler cap and Google's unit converter) are:

Front: 36psi
Rear: 33psi

Regarding tyres for the R32 (Mk 4)

Mine I think came with Continental Contact 2 tyres, but at Christmas I had Pirelli P Zero Rosso's put on the front which were superb for grip but have worn down afer 10,000 miles use. I'm now considering the Michelin Pilot Sports as I've heard they are quality for both grip, wear and noise.

On the rear i've just fitted Dunlop SP9000's which at first were quite slippery but now they've bedded in I've found them to be fine and excellent when blasting around in the rain!

Cheers Rob

I have Michelin PS2s on mine and I love them. Will probably get the same again next time.

VW do recommend that you change all four at the same time though.

Got Falken's on the 19s, noticeably less grip. Good tyres none the less.
