GMC Tire Pressure | GMC Sierra 2500 HD Tire Pressure | 2016 GMC Tire Pressure

It is vital to maintain proper tire pressure for 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 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 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD tire pressure regularly, and monitor 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 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 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD. Use 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 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 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD tires will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD tires inflated at recommended tire pressure levels at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 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 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD tires. 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 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 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD replacement tires.

2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your 2016 GMC Sierra 2500 HD speed capability is to be maintained.
