What tyre sizes and pressure does everyone have?

I run a set of 205/55/16 Dunlop SP Sport 9000 tyres on and I've noticed that when new the fitters recommend 31 PSI and that I push this up to 34PSI the next day.

the handling and ride also improve dramatically.

I am running 215/40 17"s, so pretty low profile, I stick them at 30psi, and a long run prob upto around 35psi, I now that in the past it has made a big difference to vehicle handling if one tyre has been lower, but with the present tyres it seems to make very little difference. I suspect that with having a much harder side wall in the tyre changes this. These tyres with my suspension have transformed my 9000, but she is more suited to shorter journeys, UK roads just aren't very good!

Dennis are you sure you're supposed to be on 205/"60"/16.

I thought these would be a little big for the 16" rims?
