I bought my FA5 in June and never really checked the tire pressure but when I did it was at like 27lbs @ each tire. so i put it at 40lbs @ each and it hardly spueals and handles much better.

yea!:dancing:

27 lbs isn't really that low, and 40 lbs is too high. Its to warm in SD to run those pressures. 32/34 f/r is what i like.

I usually fill mine up almost to 40 mostly 38 though for more MPG. And no your tires are not gonna blow. Honda recommends 32psi for a overall good rate. Just don't go over the max psi. It should be labeled on the tire.

Autocross pressures I run 45 up front and 25 in back on 615's. Seems to help the car rotate better. Street I run manufactures suggested or a pound higher.

Did you recieve an owners manual? There's a sticker that list your tire pressure on the pillar when you open your door. Check em out.

Check your tire pressure regularly - I went without checking mine for a couple months and was down to about 19 in the front right. The car was pulling and handling like crap - I thought there was something wrong with the car. I try to remember to check it at least once every few weeks now.
