Question Tire Pressure

What's a good tire pressure for my 68? Running regular size tires. Tire says max pressure is 45, sticker in glove box says inflate to 24. ???

I trust the tires over the glove box.The glove box is probably for bias ply tires.

Most radials run at about 32#.

My 66 mustang convertible, 6 cylinder, has the original tire pressure sticker in the glove box that shows maximum tire pressure, all around, should be 24PSI. I'm running size P20575R14 radials, all around, so what should be the pressure for these radials???

32-35 for radials. The old 24 is for Bias Ply and will ruin radials for daily driving.

I would inflate to what the tire says, then adjust from there, depending how the driving feels.

Do not fill to max tire rating! It will become rounded in the wrong way a, provide little traction and could lead to an accident due to poor braking. Try 35 to begin with.
