Recommended tire pressure for Jaguar XJ
It is vital to maintain proper tire inflation pressures for Jaguar XJ tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation while high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can reduce fuel efficiency, lead to uneven tire tread wear and decrease tire life, compromise tire safety and cause tire blowout. Check Jaguar XJ tire pressure regularly, and monitor Jaguar XJ 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 Jaguar XJ. Use Jaguar XJ recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in Jaguar XJ 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 Jaguar XJ 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 Jaguar XJ may have different recommended tire inflation pressures for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your Jaguar XJ tires inflated at recommended tire inflation pressures at all times for your driving comfort and safety.
If you replace Jaguar XJ 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 Jaguar XJ tires. Jaguar XJ 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. Jaguar XJ replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your Jaguar XJ speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the Jaguar XJ owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your Jaguar XJ replacement tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, your vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires. Original equipment tires that come on your Jaguar XJ will have the proper tire load index, so use same or higher load index when choosing replacement 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 premature tire wear, tire damage or even tire blowout. Refer to your Jaguar XJ manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and load ratings. Always refer to the Jaguar XJ owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of Jaguar XJ replacement tires.
Jaguar XJ tire pressure may fluctuate with ambient temperatures, so check Jaguar XJ tire pressure when ambient temperatures change. In winter when temperatures drop, Jaguar XJ tires may deflate by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degree Fahrenheit decrease in temperature. Maintain proper Jaguar XJ winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.
Jaguar XJ 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 vehicle has been parked overnight, using a reliable tire pressure gauge.
If your Jaguar XJ is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on. Ensure Jaguar XJ 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 the recommended tire pressure for Jaguar XJ?
Recommended tire pressure for Jaguar XJ is determined by the manufacturer based on your vehicle's characteristics and original equipment tire sizes. Select your Jaguar XJ year to get recommended tire inflation pressures for Jaguar XJ tires.
Where do I find recommended tire inflation pressures for Jaguar XJ?
You can find your Jaguar XJ recommended tire pressure in Jaguar XJ 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 Jaguar XJ will be listed in psi, bar or kPa.
How to check Jaguar XJ tire pressure?
Proper Jaguar XJ tire inflation is essential to the overall tire performance and safety. To check tire pressure for Jaguar XJ you will need to know its recommended tire pressure and a tire pressure gauge. Check cold inflation pressures in Jaguar XJ tires with tire pressure gauge and adjust to Jaguar XJ recommended tire inflation pressures as needed by adding or releasing air. Make sure to check tire inflation for your Jaguar XJ regularly to ensure safe and comfortable drive.
Is my Jaguar XJ equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)?
If your Jaguar XJ is made after 2007, it should be equipped with tire pressure monitoring system. To confirm if your Jaguar XJ has TPMS, turn on the ignition without starting the engine. If a tire icon with an exclamation sign lights up on your dashboard, your Jaguar XJ is equipped with TPMS. You can also check Jaguar XJ owner's manual for more information.
Why is Jaguar XJ tire pressure warning light on?
If your Jaguar XJ 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 or can cause tire failure. If Jaguar XJ low tire pressure warning light is on, check all Jaguar XJ tires for low air pressure and inflate tires to the recommended tire inflation pressures. Keep in mind that Tire Pressure Monitoring System does not replace routine tire pressure check and maintenance.
How do I reset Jaguar XJ tire pressure monitoring system?
To reset tire pressure monitoring system for Jaguar XJ, make sure front and rear tires are inflated to the recommended levels. Refer to your owner's manual on how to reset Jaguar XJ TPMS.
What is recommended winter tire pressure for Jaguar XJ?
Recommended tire pressure for Jaguar XJ is the same for any season, but you may inflate your Jaguar XJ tires 3 to 5 psi above the recommended tire pressure set by the manufacturer to compensate for lower temperatures during winter. Make sure to check your Jaguar XJ tire pressure more often in the winter to keep tires properly inflated for a safe ride on snow and icy roads.
