Hi all - a familiar topic but don't shrug. I Plus-oned my 1.9 from the 225/50 16s to 225/45-17 and 245/40-17 in rears.

Now I know that when you Plus X your tire set up, it's suggested you keep the Factory tire pressures (in my case it would be 29 PSI all the way around) and I tried it for a while. However, I found that the ride/steering seemed a little soft and not as crisp as when I have the tires at 32 PSI at all fours.

Do you guys make similar observations and do you think there are any negative consequences from bumping up the tire pressure 3 PSI from Factory recommendations?
