    Hi all,

    as the Kon-Tiki (Connie) is still with us (decided to keep her in the family - also) :Blush: I am experimenting with tyre pressures.
    I have no info on the old girl as regards pressures, though there is a hand scrawled 'F - 55psi R - 55psi' in the glove compartment. I am not too sure about these pressures, I would imagine the rear would be higher. The van has no real tyre wear issues though there is a little body roll on bends, but I would expect some of this due to height, kit etc.
    Anyone able to shine some light on this - recommendations, experience or you have had the same model????
    Its a Talbot 2.5TD Swift Kon-Tiki 640/6 1991.

    Many fanks in advance for information passed on.

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :Wink:

    you really need axle weights and email tyre manufacturer they will tell you but 55 psi seems a tad low :Eeek:
