    What's the rationale for lowering tire pressure with increasing width?

    drove the car for 15 mins...no discernable difference good or bad...the potholes still feel terrible but as long as the wheels don't bend...we will see

    Remember to drop the PSI about 2 or so compared to how you run them with 245/35R20. That volume and thus lower pressure is part of what will absorb some of the impacts.

    One thing I'm wondering about. Especially in comfort, the Lusso is significantly softer than the FF. That will more than likely have an effect too compared to the Lusso situation.

    The fronts are at 36. Significant shimmy above 50 so the one wheel will probably need to be replaced. Hate this pos

    What front pressure is the FF owners manual calling for?

    FWIW - and fortunately - it cost me $100 per rim for repair. My dealer outsourced them and did not add on to the cost.

    One one of the 2 wheels was repairable. The other wheel was balanced to make up for the imperfection

    Drive mine as often as I can, absolutely love my wife’s Mini, My Lexus LX 470 best built car I’ve ever owned,
    But a Ferrari 12 cylinder will nearly always be worth the pain.
    Headliners suffer because of Florida climate and the weight of the leather.

    just for sake of transparency.... I have no issues with the FF, i love my car. My issue is with RACE as they shld support these cars by not charging clients for stuff that shld have been made correctly (i.e. everything in post 92 + PTU/DCT)

    If you go by load rating, there are at least three wheels out there with a 2100 load rating. These are Forgeline GS1R, Forgeline Z01R and Forgeline GA3R.
    What's interesting is that the latter is warranted for racing with that load rating. That you only see if the wheel is properly strong.
    They also offer the Forgeline FX1-5 which is basically designed to work on heavy rigs like Burps and Expeditions. Quite sure that wheel will have a pretty substantial load rating.
