It is important to maintain proper tire pressure for 1997 Saturn SL2 tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation, and high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can compromise tire safety, cause tire blowout, decrease fuel efficiency, cause uneven tire wear and reduce tire tread life. Check 1997 Saturn SL2 tire pressure regularly, and monitor 1997 Saturn SL2 tire inflation levels to avoid driving with overinflated or underinflated tires.
Tire inflation value listed on tire sidewall is a maximum tire pressure the tire can be inflated to, and not the recommended tire pressure for 1997 Saturn SL2. Use recommended tire pressure listed on the tire pressure chart found on a sticker on driver's door jam or in 1997 Saturn SL2 manual. Recommended tire pressure for your 1997 Saturn SL2 tires will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your 1997 Saturn SL2 may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires. Keep your 1997 Saturn SL2 tires inflated at recommended tire pressure levels at all times for your driving comfort and safety.
If you replace 1997 Saturn SL2 original equipment tires with optional tire sizes or you switch to plus size tires, make sure to follow guidelines for the application of load and inflation tables to find proper tire pressure for new tires on your 1997 Saturn SL2. 1997 Saturn SL2 tires with the same load index, regardless of tire size, may carry the same load, but not always, and they 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.
Always refer to the 1997 Saturn SL2 owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of 1997 Saturn SL2 replacement tires.
1997 Saturn SL2 replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your 1997 Saturn SL2 speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the 1997 Saturn SL2 owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your 1997 Saturn SL2 replacement tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, the vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires.
Original equipment tires that come on your 1997 Saturn SL2 will have the proper tire load index, so stick to that number or higher when you replace them with new 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 tire damage, premature tire wear or even tire blowout. Refer to your 1997 Saturn SL2 manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and their load ratings.
1997 Saturn SL2 tire pressure changes with temperature, so check your 1997 Saturn SL2 tire pressure when outside temperature goes up or down. During colder months when temperatures drop, 1997 Saturn SL2 tire pressure will decrease also by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Maintain proper 1997 Saturn SL2 winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.
