Lancialulu may be on to something re. sidewalls.  I have Michelin X (new and very expensive) on the Aprilia.  Running at 24 psi the steering is still as light as a feather (but then I don't think any Fulvia can approach sliding pillar steering).   XAS insofar as I am aware are the same as X apart from the asymmetrical tread so maybe you should go with the handbook pressure at least at first.

Having just ried 22 so shall I - on the Aprilia.   Not a hge difference but noticable. Incidentally, just had great fun round a motorway roundabout at 45 mph.

I wouldn't disagree with any of the advice being offered, a good sense check is to have a quick feel of the tyres after a motorway run. If they feel very hot add a few psi and vice versa if they're not getting up to temperature. Not very scientific and rather subjective but it will definitely get you in the ball park.

Wonderful bit of common sense there Rob !!
