Michelin TB15 Tyre Pressure

Finding the correct tyre pressure for Michelin TB5 tyres can be complicated, so we asked our contact at the Michelin Classic Tyre department, who provided us with the following insights:


Your advice with 28 PSI front and 32 PSI rear make sense.

About temperature of the tyres when hot : it's the most difficult question because it depend so much of :

  • driving style
  • outside temperature
  • kind of track
  • roughness of the tarmac
  • toe in / camber value
  • etc...

    That's why we delegate a technician for every major races for Porsche's meetings.

    Lets' say that a value between 80°c & 100°c when hot is good. This value can go much higher on rally use. Maximum 20°c of difference of temperature from the outside to the inside check on the tread pattern: this value can be modified by the camber set-up.
