I think mine are at 40psi. could be 37, I'll have to check some day and see what the side wall looks like at the different pressures.

One day back in early Dec while on a chair lift and ski buddy said the new snowtires and his Audi S7 felt like the sidewall flexed to much. I told him the increase the air pressure by 5psi. Next weekend he said that worked great.

rob-2, I also like the DWS's so I don't have to run the snows to long. Took the snows off the wagon last week.
After doing more digging I can't find any other A/S that I would trust- it seems like the most highly recommended tire is the DWS. I'll try running at 40psi and see how that feels. The only other way to combat that is to switch to an 18" rim, which I won't be doing for awhile.
