Winter tyre pressure

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where to find pressures for winter tyres? There’s nothing in the handbook about what they should be, if different to the regular tyres?

Are they exactly the same size, could have a bearing if they are a narrower. Some folks tend to run tyres a little lower pressure in winter than summer to give a greater contact patch, but in effect that happens naturally unless you top up. I prefer tyres at max at all times. I get an earlier warning of a slow puncture and the option to drop pressures in snow, anyone remember snow?

Off topis (sorry!) but there's going to be plenty of the white stuff around on Friday Saturday and maybe beyond that too. Not everywhere but *possibly* anywhere, if you see what I mean. The further north, inland and up high you are the more likely it is.
