Would be interesting. I been looking for this info for awhile you would think there is some kind of info from the manufacturers on this I'm sure it's been tested. I agree with SVOboy and the police article from my experience but hard data would be nice to have because that one of the reasons we are here. It's a good idea ( except abusing rent cars) but I think for dry performance there would not be enough difference to worry about. I think the real reason that the tires are specs in the 30's is for ride comfort and wet performance. It you were going to test it it should be on wet surfaces. As the pressure increases so does the speed of hydroplaning.
