Scion xD Recommended Tire Pressure

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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