It is important to maintain proper tire pressure for 2005 Scion tC 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 2005 Scion tC tire pressure regularly, and monitor 2005 Scion tC 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 2005 Scion tC. Use recommended tire pressure listed on the tire pressure chart found on a sticker on driver's door jam or in 2005 Scion tC manual. Recommended tire pressure for your 2005 Scion tC tires will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals).

If you replace 2005 Scion tC 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 2005 Scion tC. 2005 Scion tC 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 2005 Scion tC owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of 2005 Scion tC replacement tires.
2005 Scion tC replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your 2005 Scion tC speed capability is to be maintained.
