Q3 tyre pressures

Could someone please advise me of the correct tyre pressures for my Q3. So far I have had 3 differing sets of advice.
Tyres are Bridgestone 235/50 R10

Currently set at 35 psi

Help please

I don't know fore sure, but it should be marked on the side wall of the tire.

The markings on the tire sidewall are maximum allowed, they are NOT what you should inflate them to. The owners manual, or the decal on the driver door jam indicates the recommended tire pressure, which is typically 32 to 35 PSI (much lower than the max value on the tire sidewall).

quite firm some more from the suspension than the tires. You should not lower pressure for ride.

I am sure your tires are R18 and not R10

The label on the door jam of our ‘18 Q3 details 42psi front and 46psi back. Is that what others have on there’s?
