It is vital to maintain proper tire inflation pressures for 1987 Mercury Sable tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation while high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can decrease fuel efficiency, lead to uneven tire tread wear and reduce tire life, compromise tire safety and cause tire blowout. Check 1987 Mercury Sable tire pressure regularly, and monitor 1987 Mercury Sable tire inflation pressures to avoid driving with overinflated or underinflated tires.

Tire inflation listed on tire sidewall is the maximum air pressure the tire can hold to carry its maximum load, and not the recommended tire pressure for 1987 Mercury Sable. Use 1987 Mercury Sable recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in 1987 Mercury Sable owner's manual, on a tire placard on driver's door or door jam, inner trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended tire pressure for your 1987 Mercury Sable tire sizes will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your 1987 Mercury Sable may have different recommended tire inflation pressures for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your 1987 Mercury Sable tires inflated at recommended tire inflation pressures at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace 1987 Mercury Sable original equipment tires or switch to plus size tires, make sure to follow guidelines for the application of load and inflation tables to find proper tire pressure for your new 1987 Mercury Sable tires. 1987 Mercury Sable tires with the same load index, regardless of tire size, may carry the same load, but may require substantially different inflation pressures. Tire load index may not be used independently to determine replacement tire acceptability for load capacity. An equal or greater load index does not always correspond to equal or greater load capacity at all inflation pressure settings. 1987 Mercury Sable replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your 1987 Mercury Sable speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the 1987 Mercury Sable owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle.

Original equipment tires that come on your 1987 Mercury Sable will have the proper tire load index, so use same or higher load index when choosing replacement tires. Tire load index tells you how much weight your tire can carry. Putting too much weight on your tires will overload them, and can cause premature tire wear, tire damage or even tire blowout. Refer to your 1987 Mercury Sable manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and load ratings. Always refer to the 1987 Mercury Sable owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of 1987 Mercury Sable replacement tires.
