Estimated calculations and should only be taken as suggestions.

1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI tire load inflation table provides tire pressure psi values corresponding to tire's weight load in pounds (lbs).

If your vehicle is carrying extra load, increase your tire pressure accordingly. Never overinflate tires above maximum tire pressure indicated on tire sidewall.

If you replace your original equipment tires with plus size tires, or tires with different tire size, make sure to use tire load inflation charts to find corresponding tire pressure for your new tires.

Tire Pressure Tips
  • 1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI recommended tire pressure can be found in vehicle owner’s manual, on sticker placard attached on the side of driver's door, inside glove box compartment or fuel door.
  • It is important to use tire pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer, not tire pressure listed on tire sidewall.
  • 1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI tires can naturally lose on average 1 to 2 psi of air pressure monthly, so check tire pressure regularly.
  • Check your 1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI tire pressure when tires are "cold" and have not been driven for at least three hours. Never adjust tire pressure when tires are "hot".
  • 1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI tire pressure changes by about 2.5% for each 10°F change in atmospheric temperature. Adjust tire pressure accordingly.
  • Underinflated tires can significantly reduce the life of your 1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI tires and reduce fuel efficiency by up to 5%.
  • Overinflating 1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI tires does not increase their load-carrying capacity. Always use tire inflation value recommended for your vehicle by manufacturer.
  • When replacing original equipment tires on your 1990 Volkswagen Jetta GLI with plus size tires, or tires with different size, check tire load inflation chart to find proper tire pressure for your new tires.
