Tire Pressure

I used to set my tire pressure between 18#-24# on my stock 16" salad shooters. What have those of you that have been able to hook at the track been setting the tire pressure at with the 20" wheels? I'd like to get some idea so I can dial in sooner next week when I take my SS out. My track is usually crowded so I doubt I'll get more than a few runs in to dial in on my own.

18-24# ?????? Are you shitting me? They would be almost flat.
Last two Monte Carlos I have had, one w/16 and one w/17", Good year has recomended 35 psi. I have no idea on Perilli.

I think he means only for the quarter mile. Not for street.

Street should be close to the max recommended.

Right I was asking for track only. My tires are 36-38 for everyday use so I'll probably lower the rears to 28 tomorrow night at the track and go from there.
