    I will have a look and let you know, thanks for the quick reply. can't believe I am asking a question like this!
     
  4. There is one, on the passenger side when i remember correctly.
     
  5. 197 is 30psi on the rear and 33psi on the front I believe.. 200 may be slightly different?

    yo u should have a renaultsport manual like the 197 has come with the car, that will have it in.
     
  7. its in the door shut on the drivers side.
     
  8. I use: 33psi front, 30psi rear

    Or: 35psi all round for extended motorway use.

    Although dropping the rears by a couple of psi will reduce back end wobble on heavy braking.
     
  9. I need the same info - checked the Clio manual and the Renaultsport one and nothing in the door jams either..!
     
  10. I found on renaultsport site tyre pressure in bars for 197.
    By coverterting BAR->PSI F/R 33.35/30.45

    I use 30 & 30.

    Fronts gain more heat over rears and so more pressure anyway whilst driving.

    ive got 100% conformation that the tyre pressures for a 200 are

    for normal running
    front 34psi
    rear 31psi

    for heavy loaded running
    front 35psi
    rear 35psi

    i was cleaning my car and found it on the edge of the drivers door near where the latch is, its a black lable lol

    i can even take a picture to prove it lol
     
  14. the RS booklet for my car says 33f/30r but its a 197

    maybe the 200 need the extra pound to hold up that big nose!


    JUST KIDDING 200 OWNERS!
