Peugeot Recommended Tire Pressure

Check Peugeot tire pressure charts with recommended tire inflation pressures for Peugeot tires to improve fuel efficiency, extend tire life and drive safely. Select your Peugeot model or year.

It is vital to maintain proper tire inflation pressures for Peugeot 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 Peugeot tire pressure regularly, and monitor Peugeot 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 Peugeot. Use Peugeot recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in Peugeot 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 Peugeot 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 Peugeot may have different recommended tire inflation pressures for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your Peugeot tires inflated at recommended tire inflation pressures at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace Peugeot 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 Peugeot tires. Peugeot 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. Peugeot replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your Peugeot speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the Peugeot owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your Peugeot 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 Peugeot 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 Peugeot manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and load ratings. Always refer to the Peugeot owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of Peugeot replacement tires.

Peugeot tire pressure may fluctuate with ambient temperatures, so check Peugeot tire pressure when ambient temperatures change. In winter when temperatures drop, Peugeot tires may deflate by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degree Fahrenheit decrease in temperature. Maintain proper Peugeot winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.

Peugeot 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 Peugeot is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on. Ensure Peugeot 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 Peugeot?
Recommended tire pressure for Peugeot is determined by the manufacturer based on your vehicle's characteristics and original equipment tire sizes. Select your Peugeot year or model to get recommended tire inflation pressures for Peugeot tires.

Where do I find recommended tire pressure settings for Peugeot?
You can find your Peugeot recommended tire pressure in Peugeot 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 Peugeot will be listed in psi, bar or kPa.

How to check Peugeot tire pressure?
Proper Peugeot tire inflation is essential to the overall tire performance and safety. To check tire pressure for Peugeot you will need to know its recommended tire pressure and a tire pressure gauge. Check cold inflation pressures in Peugeot tires with tire pressure gauge and adjust to Peugeot recommended tire inflation pressures as needed by adding or releasing air. Make sure to check tire inflation for your Peugeot regularly to ensure safe and comfortable drive.

Why is Peugeot tire pressure warning light on?
If your Peugeot 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 Peugeot low tire pressure warning light is on, check all Peugeot 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 Peugeot tire pressure monitoring system?
To reset tire pressure monitoring system for Peugeot, make sure front and rear tires are inflated to the recommended levels. Refer to your owner's manual on how to reset Peugeot TPMS.

What is recommended winter tire pressure for Peugeot?
Recommended tire pressure for Peugeot is the same for any season, but you may inflate your Peugeot 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 Peugeot tire pressure more often in the winter to keep tires properly inflated for a safe ride on snow and icy roads.
