It is vital to maintain proper tire inflation pressures for 2012 Audi A4 Quattro 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 2012 Audi A4 Quattro tire pressure regularly, and monitor 2012 Audi A4 Quattro 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 2012 Audi A4 Quattro. Use 2012 Audi A4 Quattro recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in 2012 Audi A4 Quattro 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 2012 Audi A4 Quattro 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 2012 Audi A4 Quattro may have different recommended tire inflation pressures for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your 2012 Audi A4 Quattro tires inflated at recommended tire inflation pressures at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace 2012 Audi A4 Quattro 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 2012 Audi A4 Quattro tires. 2012 Audi A4 Quattro 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. 2012 Audi A4 Quattro replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your 2012 Audi A4 Quattro speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the 2012 Audi A4 Quattro owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle.
