Tire pressure for nitto nt555s?

I'm on 245/45/17s with about 34 psi all around, should I leave it like that or can I get better performance/traction if I change the pressures because I do get loose going into second gear, would a lower pressure in the back help?

Nah, just for street driving, might try something like 30 in the back and 35 up front, launches should be good and maybe will grip going into second a little better, open for anyone's advice

25 psi on street tires. Still have some traction problems thought, but I suck at launching haha

And also wouldn't recommend lowering tire pressure for daily driving. Kills mpg and it it's low enough can wear your sidewall down and you risk a blowout
