It is important to maintain proper tire pressure for your car, minivan, light truck, pickup, crossover or SUV 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 tire pressure regularly, and monitor 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 your vehicle. Use recommended tire pressure listed on the tire pressure chart found on a sticker on driver's door jam or in vehicle's manual. Your vehicle's recommended tire pressure will be listed on of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your vehicle may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires. Keep your tires inflated at recommended tire pressure levels at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace 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 vehicle. 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 vehicle owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of replacement tires.

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

Original equipment tires that come on your vehicle will have the proper tire load index, so stick to that number or higher when you replace them with new 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 tire damage, premature tire wear or even tire blowout. Refer to your vehicle's manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and their load ratings.

Tire pressure changes with temperature, so check your tire pressure when outside temperature goes up or down. During colder months when temperatures drop, your vehicle's tire pressure will decrease also by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Maintain proper winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.

Tire pressure should be checked when tires are cold, after your vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours. It is best to check your tire inflation pressure in the morning, after the car has been parked overnight, using a reliable tire pressure gauge.

If your car is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on. Ensure your tire pressure sensors are working properly to stay alert and enjoy a safe ride. If your tire pressure warning light is on, check front and rear tires to make sure they are properly inflated.

What is my vehicle's recommended tire pressure?
Recommended tire pressure for your car, minivan, light truck, pickup, crossover or SUV is determined by the manufacturer based on your vehicle's characteristics and original equipment tire sizes.

How do I find recommended tire pressure settings for my car, minivan, light truck, pickup, crossover or SUV? What should my optimal tire pressure be?
You can find your vehicle's recommended tire pressure in vehicle owner's manual, on sticker attached to the driver's door jam, inside glove box compartment or fuel door. Recommended tire inflation for your vehicle will be listed in psi, bar or kPa.

How to check tire pressure for my car, minivan, light truck, pickup, crossover or SUV?
Proper tire inflation is essential to the overall tire performance of your vehicle. To check tire pressure for your vehicle you will need to know its recommended tire pressure levels and a standard or digital tire pressure gauge. Check inflation levels in your tires with the tire pressure gauge and adjust your vehicle's tire pressure to its recommended levels be adding or releasing air. Check tire pressure levels in all tires again. Make sure to check tire inflation for your vehicle regularly to ensure safe and comfortable drive.

Why is my tire pressure warning light on?
If your vehicle is equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) it will alert you when tire pressure is too low and your tires could be underinflated, which can lead to uneven tire wear and can cause tire failure. If tire pressure warning light is on, check all tires for low tire pressure and inflate tires to the recommended tire pressure levels. Keep in mind that Tire Pressure Monitoring System does not replace routine tire pressure check and maintenance.

How to reset tire pressure warning light?
To reset tire pressure monitoring system for your vehicle, make sure front and rear tires are inflated to the recommended levels. Turn the engine on, then press and hold the tire pressure reset button located under the steering wheel on the instrument panel. Hold the button down until the TPMS light blinks three times, then release the button.

What is recommended winter tire pressure for my car, minivan, truck, pickup, crossover or SUV?
Recommended winter tire pressure for your vehicle is the same as all other seasons. You should keep tire inflation at recommended levels in any weather conditions. Tire inflation will decrease with lower outside temperatures, so make sure to check tire pressure during winter months regularly to keep your tires properly inflated in the winter.
