What tire pressure for 195/65/15? The sticker on the fuel cap says min 1.9 and max 2.1 for the front tires. However info on the tire says minumum is 2.2 bar. Now I have 2.5 bar in all 4 wheels. It is too much for mk4 solo driving?

I run 2.3 bar in my front tyres, and 2.2 bar in my rear tyres. In my old tyres I ran 2 bar, because they used to lose traction too easily at higher pressures.

 

I usually go as high as I can without any loss in grip, and it varies depending on the tyre since some lose traction too easily at higher pressures.

Thanks. When I had 1.9 I felt it is too low.
