    so just done my tyres from all 4 matching tyres and put them all to 34psi all round, they were all slightly off but not by much to be honest, but when you are looking at the car i have to say they do all look like they need more air and look well down although thats what roughly they are supposed to be, does everyone else agree that there tyres all look like they are down and needing more air? is that just the way of it then lol.

    so away to jack up and do the one wheel trick see what the crack is there lol

    Official figure is 30psi for all tyres.
    I like the ride my FL gives at 32 psi every tyre.

    I do agree that a couple of them seem to be flattish even though all are the same age and same make / type.

    I am probably going to get a new set later this summer even though the back ones look like new still.

    I run 30psi, and they do look a bit flat, especially when one side is parked on a kerb.
    Just remember the pressures will increase 4-5psi once warm, at this you'll mainly be running on the middle 3rd of your tyre with your starting point of 34psi.

    check this out : ..
    " Tyre Pressures-Chalk Test "
    https://www.landyzone.co.uk/land-rover/tyre-pressures-chalk-test.274005/

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    32 psi suits mine ..
    they're up to 34 .. maybe 35 .. within 10 mile ..
    35/36 on a 25+deg. sunny day .. ( tps system .. only accurate to within 1.5 psi .. unfortunately )

    on 3rd set of tyres .. each set were best at 32 psi ..
    i do have a tendency to monitor ambient temps. 'n adjust pressures to suit
    e.g. if a week of uk. type heatwave were forecast ..
    i'd drop cold psi reading by 1 psi or so ..

    .. yeah .. .. but ...
    that's a radial .. can appear even flatter if the contact patch happens to be sat
    directly on a slightly protruding cobble stone .. fer example .. :)

    Radial tyres do look flat even when at the correct pressure. The fronts look flatter than the rear, due the extra weight up front.
