Estimated calculations and should only be taken as suggestions.

2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX 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
  • 2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX 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.
  • 2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX tires can naturally lose on average 1 to 2 psi of air pressure monthly, so check tire pressure regularly.
  • Check your 2005 Volkswagen Passat GLX tire pressure when tires are "cold" and have not been driven for at least three hours. Never adjust tire pressure when tires are "hot".
