WAY TO GO, GEO8 . . .

Regardless of the miles, those 15 plus year old Goodyear RSA Originals must have been "tough as nails" and harder than the pavement.

I use the “old school” chalk method to determine what inflation pressure(s) give the best tread pattern. 35 front, 30 rear works for my setup. I doubt you would notice much ride softness between 30 and 35 psi on your front Continentals, but you will notice a difference in turning responsiveness with the higher inflation.

My 'upsized' Conti's are 255/40/19 front and 315/35/20 rear.

To me, 35# front and rear 'seemed right' after I experimented with different pressures. Not scientific, but rather seat of the pants analysis.
