What is the correct tire pressure for your car? To get proper tire pressure for your vehicle, you need to look for recommended tire inflation pressures listed by the vehicle's manufacturer on a tire placard inside the driver's door or in the car owner's manual. Keep in mind that tire inflation listed on tire sidewall is the maximum tire pressure the tire can be inflated to support its maximum load, and not the recommended tire pressure for your vehicle. Some vehicles may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires, especially if your car has staggered tires where original equipment tire size for front tires is different from original equipment tire size for rear tires.
Tire pressure may also be affected by your tire model and tire size specifications. Check the tire size chart of your tire model to see the maximum tire inflation psi at its maximum load capacity.
