    Normally 32 at the front and 30 at the rear. Totally depends on what car.

    It will say in the manual/inside the filler cap.

    And then you should set them to how you like them.

    28 front 30 rears but if you get any skip then drop the rears to 28 as well.

    will have a look, if so, this will be for the standard wheels that were on the car.

    Doesn't matter. Also try the inside of the fuel cover.
