Tire pressures are to be checked cold. Check with your tire manufacturer. They do take that into consideration.

[QUOTE=CapriRacer;111673

Wouldn't it be easier to over inflate by a couple of psi, let the tire cool, then bleed it down?[/QUOTE]

That is what I do.
Fuel the car , pump up the tyres and drive home (less than 1 kilometre) and let the car stand in the garage overnight.
Next morning set the tyre pressures to what I want using my gauge ( and not the one at the petrol station which takes out that variable as well ) with the tyres cold and then do it all again next week.

Pete.
