i run 34-35 cold all around. and with coding, i know the exact pressures! recommended is 35, but i tend to run a little flatter for more grip.

Why so high on the M? Recommended is 35 all around.

Recommended is 37 all round if you are planning to exceed 100mph.

I pump 36 all round when cold. After 12,500km so far, the centre of all 4 tyres are wearing more than the outer areas. May look into perhaps lowering pressure to 35 to "even out" the wear.
