Hello from Edinburgh GB. I have a 2 litreLT diesel am using tyre pressures of 32 psi. I get a fairly solid ride using these pressures. If I go up to 39psi (eco) pressureswhat effect does this have on the handling and comfort of car?

hello fellow edinburgh person!
anyway onto your question; i have a 1.8 orlando petrol with 17" alloys, put my tyres up to the 39psi eco setting a few days ago and it fells much the same firm ride but not bone shaking. Passengers didnt notice any difference, and as a bonus my mpg went up from 25 to 30!

Might wear your tyres more at higher pressure? All Cruze tyres have same pressure?????????
i would hope that because its a manufactures sticker on the car that the higher psi had been tested! but you never know
