Guys and gals, I normally don't play around with a car's setup, but as the more I delve deeper into PCars the more I find myself tinkering with stuff.

One thing has been crossing my mind recently is how to adjust tire pressures when putting on wet tires from a dry race scenario and the opposite. Is their a general rule of thumb for this as a guide, I am aware that each car will be different. All help welcome.

Nobody has an opinion on this?

There's a Tyre Physics thread (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?27185-TYRE-PHYSICS-DISCUSSION) for this

Generally wet tires will need a lower tire pressure as they will run cooler if the track stays wet (a lower tire pressure can also help achieve more contact across the tire). Basically, one wants to get the tires to run at their optimum temperature (dry or wet).
