Viggen tire pressure

I found this today and thought it was cool and wondered if this is a Viggen only thing. On the door I found the tire pressure suggestions from Saab. It said 32psi which was a no brainer but also had different recommendations according to speed and passengers. The cool thing was there was a sugesstion for 100mph---MAXmph for 38psi. I thought that was kinda cool since it was indicating the cars nature and capabilties for reasonably fast highway speeds. This is the first car I have owned that had such information.

my SPG has 4 tire pressure ranges,

1-2 pass 0-130
3-5 pass 0-130
1-2 pass 130+
3-5 pass 130+

if I remember to check my sunvisor, I'll post the values. FYI, I was in a 92 9000-S the other day and it had the same type of sunvisor, however it only listed 0-120 obviously they were realistic when they did up the speeds for what car they were going into.

My 9000 Aero has recommended pressures for various loads/speeds in the same place as well, as did my old CSE. I think its another one of those Saab things.

My base model 1999 9-3 has the same thing. There are pressures for normal load and under 100 mph (or 110?), max cargo load and for speeds above 100 or 110 mph. That is actually quite common with cars that are sold in Europe and therefore expected to see higher highway speeds.

Heck, even my wife's 1995 Renault Twingo had a similar tire pressure reccomendation. It only had 50 hp! The funny thing though, is that I got it to 185 kph more than once!
