    Are the 2016 dtm cars supposed to have tire pressures already or is that one of the classes that slipped in there? In other words should i ignore the pressures for setup work or tweak those as well?

    Even if it should not be in the game, the tire pressure definitely has an effect on the tire temperature on the current released build.
    But I will also wait for a developer's answer to be sure!

    Tbh i couldnt notice such effects. Tried min and max pressures and didnt really notice any difference :D
    But waiting for an official answer sound like a good idea. To speed things up a little @Alex Hodgkinson :D

    On Nordschleife I was able to reduce left front from 104° to 98° by increasing pressure from 200 to 220.
    Ofcourse in combination with all other tire pressures.

    I would be mortify If this isn't real :(

    So funny, just came here to ask if tire pressures in DTM '92 actually have an effect, because I've tried everything from min to max on my front right and nothing seems to have an effect on its temp.

    Hi guys, any changes you notice are a pseudo-effect. The garage menu might be allowing changes, but in actual fact is makes no difference to the car. Sorry!
