What's all this 'bar' stuff?  That how many bars you can hit before you have to check your tyre pressure?
Us Yankees want to know kilopascals ;)

Just returned from the Italian/French   mountain passes. Loads of fun, even with a fully laden Kia Rio I was   repatriating, also thanks to the climate control on board. If you are   returning during the weekend I strongly advise you to avoid the Toll roads and   Motorways, they may be very crowded and slow, are expensive, very, very boring   and the services and meals are lousy.
Tap in "avoid motor ways and/or toll   roads" on your (up to date!!!!) GPS or smart phone and enjoy the really   excellent secondary and smaller roads. It will take a bit longer but is so   more pleasant with nice places to see, many excellent small restaurants,   hotels on the way, plenty of arm muscle exercise and the petrol is way   cheaper. Just be aware that petrol is mainly sold along the road near the   larger towns and at the hyper markets e.g. Intermarché, very well indicated   beforehand often near industrial estates. Do carry a 10 litre jerrycan with   petrol, just in case.
Tyre pressure also depends on temperature, I had over   40ºC with tarmac melting. I would settle for around 2bar for this size of tyre   in general.

Getting the car ready for a drive to the South of     France taking in the Route des Grandes Alpes all the way to Menton. Then     back mostly on Motorways.
So the drive will be a mixture of Motorways and     Mountain Pass Roads.
Question therefore is what Bar Pressure should I     put in for the different roads.
I have 72 spoke wheels all fitted with relatively     new Vredestein Tyres 185/70, HR15, 89H
As usual I look forward to the benefit of your     collective wisdom
Many thanks
