Just had a loaner T and the power stearing seemed to by much lighter than my own. I feel my T is a bit of an effort by comparison. Could this be a problem or are there things I should check first?

I had a T 2.5 with std wheels and felt it was heavier that my with the 19 inch wheels.

Could it have been that?

I have the 2.5 se sport auto with 18", so happens the loaner was the same model.

i thought that too, inflate the tyres upto 50psi which is the max pressure in the 18" turnaze, i pumped mine up over the weekend the pressure had dropped to 35psi

I noticed this too on a loaner Treg, was told the reason was the loaner had a few more miles under it's belt than my Touareg.

Is 50psi really ok to do? I usualy go by the driver door guide say 32 and 34 then maybe add 1?

Agreed
- hope the 50psi setting was just for a test, otherwise the increase in pressure (due to raised temp from friction) when your at motorway speeds could lead to a blow-out


Sorry if that's stating the obvious - just concerned for your safety

i think something must be a miss here, as my tyres where at 34 psi and looked and drove as if they where flat

on my tyres it says max psi is 50

the problem with the info on the inside idoor s that if you have a diffirent tyre those details will be diffirent to the ones vw have

any ideas
