Tire Pressure

My 97 RL always looks under inflated at the front, even though the tire pressure is set correctly at 29 psi as per Acura spec. Rear wheels look fine. I just pumped it up yesterday to about 32 - 33 psi.
I was wondering what you guys do in terms of tire pressure.

It is properly inflated; but remember that your car is significantly heavier in front than it is in the back ~ in your car... probably 59% of the weight is over the front wheels, giving them a squashed-down look. Acura knows what they're doing with the tire pressure recommendations. You have more contact patch up front which helps with handling. Besides, radial tires never look "completely perfectly round". Don't worry about it, as long as your wheels are at the correct pressure, you're fine.

You can also do your own data collection on your own vehicle as long as everything is up to par. Just monitor the tire wear. The huge sidewall on stock RL wheels and tires squish a lot. Its part of the comfort ride too.

you cannot judge it tires are underinflated just by looking at them. stick to the recommended tire pressure levels set by vehicle manufacturer
