Recommended tyre pressures


NEVER use the pressure rating on the tire. That is only the recommended MAX pressure that tire can take. The only tire pressure you should follow is located on the placard either on the inside of the door under the latch, or on the door jam under the latch receiver. Using the tire pressure on the tire can result in poor performance, traction, tire blowouts, uneven tire wear, and poor gas mileage. The manufacturer factors in details the tire could never know, such as weight of the vehicle, alignment specifications, and performance of the vehicle.

What is the right tire air gauge of 1998 sunfire?


Tire pressure should be within 5 psi of the tires recommended max pressure but never higher. All tires have there max pressure stamped on the sidewall of the tire. Never go by the vehicles recommendation for tire pressure, always go by the tire. Some tires have different pressure recommendations than others. 35psi is most common- but some car tires rec. 44psi or more.

At what tire pressure is the tire pressure warning indicator activated


The LOW TIRE PRESSURE warning light will come on when the pressure is 25% below the manufacturer's recommended pressure. If I recall correctly, the 2007 Sonata has a manufacturer's recommended tire pressure of 30 psi. There is a tire label (sticker) on the inside driver's door jamb ('B' Pillar which tells you what the manufacturer's recommend tire inflation pressure should be. Once you have that value, you can calculate 25% of that & find the pressure at which the warning light should come on. NOTE: The TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) does not continually nor constantly scan the sensors in the wheels for this information - once every 3 to 10 minutes.

The sticker with the recommended tire pressure is missing


It is best to use the tire pressure listed on the tire itself. Look for the recommended tire pressure on the tire and also notice the max pressure and then adjust between the two for what gives you the desired ride.

What are the tyre pressures fora Toyota Platz


Look on the Tire's sidewall for the Recommended Maximum Pressure and don't exceed it. The inside of the drivers door panel or in the drivers manual list the recommended tire pressure for the Stock tires. I always recommend checking the specific tire for the Tire Manufacturers recommended pressure, and never exceed the Maximum pressure on the tire.

What psi should be in tire's


It all depends on the vehicle you are driving and the tires that are on it. For the most part, you can see what the vehicle manufacturer recommends by checking the tire/vehicle certification label on the driver's door or on the drivers door jamb area. It will tell you the recommended tire size, the maximum load rating and the recommended tire inflation pressure.

Dashboard light (!)


What you are seeing is a low tire pressure light and it will illuminate when the air pressure in any of the tires is above or below the factory recommended pressure. It can also illuminate when there is a sensor that has gone bad or is defective, this usually happens after you have had new tires installed, if the technician damaged one. I would recommend that you first look in the drivers side door jam of the vehicle to see what the recommended tire pressure is and then check all of your tires to see if the pressure incorrect, and if so then fill or let air out of the tire to the recommended psi.After you have done this, drive the vehicle and the light will automatically turn off. If this does not work, then I would recommend taking the vehicle to Toyota and they will be able to pin point which TPS (tire pressure sensor) is not reading correctly and you can then have it replaced. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal.

If this is right, is the Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor (TPMS) o Tire Pressure Monitor Systems (TPMS) are being used on more and more new vehicles. Low tires are potentially dangerous, especially if a vehicle is heavily loaded and traveling at highway speeds during hot weather. A low tire under these conditions is a blowout waiting to happen. The inflation pressure of the tires should be checked regularly, but many motorist do not check their tires. That is why Tire Pressure Monitor Systems are coming into use.

Tires are designed to operate within a certain pressure range. The recommended inflation pressure can usually be found in the vehicle owner's manual and on a decal that may be located in the glove box or door jam. The recommended inflation pressure is designed to give the best combination of ride comfort, load carrying capacity and rolling resistance.


NOTE: The maximum cold inflation pressure on the sidewall of a tire is NOT the recommended inflation pressure. It is a maximum limit for the tire only. The recommended inflation pressure for most passenger car tires is 32 to 34 psi (cold).

Hope helps (rated this).

Tire pressure


You'll get a lot of opinions on what tire pressure to run but the correct tire pressure for you is not a matter of polling other rider's opinion. Here are the basics you'll need to decide for yourself. Start with the BIKE (not the tire *see below) manufacturer's recommendation in the owners manual or under-seat sticker. This is the number they consider to be the best balance between handling grip and tire wear. Further if you're running alloy wheels on poor pavement, consider adding 2 psi to the recommended tire pressure just to reduce the likelihood of pothole damage. Just as you would for a car, increase the pressure 2 psi or so for sustained high speed operation (or 2-up riding) to reduce rolling friction and casing flexing. Check your tire pressure regularly, as they say. In order to get optimum handling a tire has to get to its optimum temperature which is different for each brand of tire. Unless you own a tire pyrometer that will measure tire temperature directly, you’ll need to measure it indirectly by checking tire pressure since tire pressure increases with tire temperature. Tire temperature is important to know because too much flexing of the casing of an under-inflated tire for a given riding style and road will result in overheating resulting in less than optimum grip. Over-pressurizing a tire will reduce casing flexing and prevent the tire from getting up to the optimum operating temperature and performance again suffers. Sliding and spinning the tires also increase tire temperatures from friction heating. A technique for those wanting to get the most out of their tires on the street is to use the 10/20% rule. First check the tire pressure when the tire is cold. Then take a ride on your favorite twisty piece of road. Then, measure the tire pressure immediately after stopping. If the pressure has risen less than 10% on the front or 20% on the rear, the rider should remove air from the tire. So for example, starting at a front tire pressure of 32.5 psi should bring you up to 36 psi hot. Once you obtain this pressure increase for a given rider, bike, tire, road and road temperature combination, check the tire pressure again while cold and record it for future reference. Each manufacturer is different. Each tire model is different. A tire design that runs cooler needs to run a lower pressure (2-3 psi front) to get up to optimum temperature. The rear tire runs hotter than the front tire, road and track. So the rear tire cold-to-hot increase is greater. Dropping air pressure has the additional side effect of scrubbing more rubber area. When I used the tire pressures recommended by Ducati (32.5F/36R) for my 916 on my favorite road, I got exactly 10/20% on a set of Bridgestone BT-012SS. So I guess I'm an average rider and the BT-012SS runs at an average operating temperature compared to other brands. For the track you'll have to drop the cold tire pressures an additional 10/20%. Track operation will get tires hotter (increasing the cold-to-hot pressure range) so starting at say 32/30 psi now should bring you up to the same temperature (and pressure) that 35/39 psi gave you for the street. Don't even think about running these low track cold pressures on the street. Finally, dropping tire pressures on street tires for track use has its limitations, so street compound tires on the track often get too hot and go beyond sticky to greasy. That's why you have race tires. Race tire compounds are designed for severe operation at these higher temperatures for a limited number of thermal cycles. On the other hand, a race tire on the street usually won't get up to the appropriate temperature for good performance. At street speeds, the race compound often won't perform as well as a street tire. Finally, a tire that is inflated to a lower pressure than recommended will have a tire profile that will sag slightly in the middle. This sagging profile results in increased rolling friction and causes the tires to run hotter. This will reduce tire life but it will also increase tire traction or grip. Depending upon racing conditions and the overall setup of the bike the increased grip may be necessary to be competitive even at the cost of tire life. * Tire Manufacturer's Recommendations Japanese sportbikes seem to have an extra 4-6 psi specified for their tires, compared to the equivalent Ducati. Why? A tire manufacturer will recommend a pressure that is a balance between tire life and grip. When a bike manufacturer is developing a new model their test riders will determine what pressures in their opinion, best suit the new model. The recommended pressures are the best for general street (not track) riding, so you can increase grip somewhat by reducing pressures. But to answer the question about higher recommended tire pressures for Japanese in-line fours versus Ducati twins - in-line fours heat up their tires more than a twin so a higher starting pressure is needed to prevent overheating the tires, particularly the rear tire. Years ago, superbike racers discovered that it was easier to modulate the power to prevent wheelspin on the Ducati V-twins than it was to do the same on the Japanese inline-fours. This is because there is a longer interval (in terms of both time and crankshaft rotation) between cylinders firing, which gives the rear tire a break - time to recover traction and match its speed to that of the motorcycle. More recently, more sophisticated traction control systems have been tried to reduce tire temperatures, improve tire life and lap times,,,
