    My 2020 L ECO came with the newest Bridgestone Ecopia 422 Plus tires. I like them so far. What pressure do you keep your LRR tires at? I keep them 42 psi all around. Your opinions please? Thank you.

    I have the same tires and I run them at 42-43 PSI.

    Ok great, thanks!!! Do you like them? So far, they have been great for me, even in rain.

    Also, do you use nitrogen?

    I like them so far. I’ve put about 40k on them.

    I do not use nitrogen, air works just fine for me. Plus it’s free.

    Ok thanks. How do you find their traction in the rain?

    Pretty good I think, just remember that with a higher tire pressure you will lose some wet weather traction because the tire has less contact with the road.

    Nitrogen is generally thought to be a waste of money - besides, you can get mostly nitrogen in an 80% blend free. It's called air.

    Unless you've got a Jumbo Jet or similar - and drive at stratospheric heights - forget it.

    A couple of pounds over the recommendation on the drivers door decal, at most. I set all four the same too.
