Few questions

Hi guys, i have few questions for you.

1) How much Compass Rallye 2007 weights? Everywhere around i keep finding numbers around 1500-1550kg (3300-3400 pounds), but, in my vehicle registration card stands - mass 1800 kg (4000 pounds)! That is pretty weird.

2) What is the best inflation pressure for 235/60 R18 tire? Stock tire sticker in drivers door is for some 16" or 17" tire, and not for this one. Either give suggestions in psi or in bar.

The Base curb weight (4x2 or 4x4) for a
5-speed model is 3,071 - 3,223 lbs.
CVT is 3,153 - 3,305

I was running Kumho 235/60 R18 at 35 psi and liked it. Just don't exceed the Max Pressure stated on the side of the tire. Mine said 51 lbs and I did run them up to 40 lbs at one point but saw no advantage to doing that.

your registration says 1,800 KG because that is the MAXIMUM weight for that class. it's impossible for the DMV (or you local government automotive department) to create a fee for each individual weight, so the weight class you're in is the closest weight of your car without going under.
