What are the correct tyre pressures for my car?

As recommended by you, I have just fitted Michelin Cross Climates to my 2013 Mercedes C220 CDI. The garage set them at 32PSI, but the car spec states 36PSI. What do you recommend?

32PSI to give the tyres some compliancy and a much better ride quality. 32PSI cold becomes 33-34PSI in use once heat expands the air in the tyres. Check Tyres On The Drive (bit.ly/2ZlEVaR) and Blackcircles.com (bit.ly/2JM6bqG) for sizes and prices and read our Tyre Buying Guide (bit.ly/2wsFHBU).
