Scion xA Recommended Tire Pressure

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

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

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

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

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

Where do I find recommended tire inflation pressures for Scion xA?
You can find your Scion xA recommended tire pressure in Scion xA 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 Scion xA will be listed in psi, bar or kPa.

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

Is my Scion xA equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)?
If your Scion xA is made after 2007, it should be equipped with tire pressure monitoring system. To confirm if your Scion xA has TPMS, turn on the ignition without starting the engine. If a tire icon with an exclamation sign lights up on your dashboard, your Scion xA is equipped with TPMS. You can also check Scion xA owner's manual for more information.

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

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