It is vital to maintain proper tire pressure for 2011 Scion tC 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 2011 Scion tC tire pressure regularly, and monitor 2011 Scion tC tire inflation levels to avoid driving with overinflated or underinflated tires.

Tire inflation value 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 2011 Scion tC. Use 2011 Scion tC recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in 2011 Scion tC owner's manual, on a sticker on driver's door or door jam, inner trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended tire pressure for your 2011 Scion tC tires will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your 2011 Scion tC may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your 2011 Scion tC tires inflated at recommended tire pressure levels at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace 2011 Scion tC 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 2011 Scion tC tires. 2011 Scion tC 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.

Always refer to the 2011 Scion tC owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of 2011 Scion tC replacement tires.

2011 Scion tC replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your 2011 Scion tC speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the 2011 Scion tC owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your 2011 Scion tC replacement tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, your vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires.

Original equipment tires that come on your 2011 Scion tC 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 2011 Scion tC manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and load ratings.

2011 Scion tC tire pressure may fluctuate with ambient temperatures, so check 2011 Scion tC tire pressure when ambient temperatures change.
