Randall, this happened with my '05 987 top. I can NOT believe that porsche didn't make this a replaceable part, especially when they knew it was a problem with the 986 too!

WOW seriously!? I can't believe they would have a different sticker! Mine shows the pressures for 18" and 19", although mine came with 18's. That's just ridiculous! And the price for a...

I believe you will find a sticker on the car when you open your door that tells you what the pressures should be for the entire range of offerings from Porsche.

By the way, I still have a set of...

2005 Boxster S, almost 54,000 miles, now on a CPO warranty for 100,000 miles. Shouldn't take long, considering it's 3.75 years old and I managed over 14,000 a year already. Yeesh.

Yeah, a chip tune costs less than $1000, but I don't know if I want to bother, what with Cali gas being what it is and all. Might not be cost-effective. Lean things out a bit, get knock, ECU pulls...
