best track tire pressure for Sport Cups and BFG R1

Hi,

as I am a "racer on a budget" and am always looking for some good deals. This year I bought two sets of slightly used track tires which should be just enough to bring me through this year's track season.

The tires are
* Michelin Sport Cups
* BFG R1

As I never tracked any of these those before I was wondering if anyone has some experience with them (on a Boxster) and could share the "sweet spot" for front/rear "hot" tire pressure for both of them

I have never run nonstock tires but I do use a pyrometer to check tire temps after hot laps. I have seen these for $50 range. Also you should check Michelin/BFG website for baseline PSI.
