pilot road 3 tire pressure?

Anyone have any suggestions for pressure range for these tires? I'm trying them out this weekend, and it's going to 45-75 degrees.

Anyone run these before? Or had any experience with the road 2s on the track?

I think for any street tire, esp a sport-touring tire, running in the 30-32psi range would be good since you are just looking to get consistent feel and a few .1s aren't going to matter.

I had the Road 2 tires and ran 28/30 for most of the year in Vegas.

FYI, according to the michelin rep at the track, use 34 front and rear. That's what I used, and loved it.

I am guessing the rep would suggest whatever is correct for the street as its a street tire and to cover his ass. As long as you felt comfortable that's what matters most but you should try running a few psi less some time just to see if you notice a difference.
