TR2/3/3A What air pressure is recommended in my Hoosier tires?

Quite a while back I installed some Hoosier wet weather racing tires on my TR3. They are P205/50-15 89H. HWET is shown on the sidewall. I use them for my daily driving. They are very sticky and noisy, but look good on TR6 wheels. :smile: I have been running 35 pounds of pressure in them. Does anyone have a recommendation on what air pressure would be best in this type tire for around town and some back highway driving? Thanks!

The manual suggests slightly lower in the front (24front, 28rer). That may be a bit low but it does mitigate the harsh ride a bit. I'd try it and see what you get.
