Hi all,
Still running around on my mk4 golf & still loving it!

Anyway, car came with 14 inch steel wheels, yes 14 inch!
I have acquired a set of alloys that came of a gti or some other sporty model (mine is bog standard 1.6s)
Tyres already fitted to wheels & are 205/55/16 v
So how much air should I be outing in, when I go use sainsburys free air/water machine (damn you Tesco, I now have to drive 3mins longer)

It usually says it on the tyre. Go 2.1 bar, you'll be fine.
1.9-2.2 bar are within usual stuff.
