It is important to maintain proper tire pressure for 1997 Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy tire pressure regularly, and monitor 1997 Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy. Use recommended tire pressure listed on the tire pressure chart found on a sticker on driver's door jam or in 1997 Subaru Legacy manual. Recommended tire pressure for your 1997 Subaru Legacy 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 Subaru Legacy may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires. Keep your 1997 Subaru Legacy tires inflated at recommended tire pressure levels at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

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 Subaru Legacy owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of 1997 Subaru Legacy replacement tires.
