Find recommended tire pressure for Smart Fortwo tires to drive safe, extend tire life and reduce fuel consumption.
Select Smart Fortwo year to find your Smart Fortwo recommended tire pressure based on Smart Fortwo original equipment tire sizes with tire inflation range from 26 psi to 29 psi for front tires and 32 psi to 36 psi for rear tires.
It is important to maintain proper tire pressure for Smart Fortwo tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation, and high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can compromise tire safety, cause tire blowout, decrease fuel efficiency, cause uneven tire wear and reduce tire tread life. Check Smart Fortwo tire pressure regularly, and monitor Smart Fortwo tire inflation levels to avoid overinflated or underinflated tires.
Keep in mind that tire inflation value listed on tire sidewall is a maximum tire pressure the tire can be inflated to, and not a recommended tire pressure for Smart Fortwo. Use recommended tire pressure listed on the tire pressure chart found on a sticker on driver's door jam or in Smart Fortwo manual. Also, pay attention as your Smart Fortwo may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires. Keep Smart Fortwo tires inflated within reasonable psi range of the recommended levels.
If you replace Smart Fortwo original equipment tires with optional tire sizes or you 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 tires on your Smart Fortwo. Tires with the same load index, regardless of tire size, may carry the same load, but not always, and they 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.
Always refer to the Smart Fortwo owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of replacement tires.
Smart Fortwo replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your Smart Fortwo speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the Smart Fortwo owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If Smart Fortwo replacement tires have a lower speed rating than Smart Fortwo original equipment tires, the vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires.
Original equipment tires that come on your Smart Fortwo will have the proper tire load index, so stick to that number or higher when you replace them with new 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 tire damage, premature tire wear or even tire blowout. You can check Smart Fortwo manual to find the recommended tire size and load rating.
Smart Fortwo tire pressure changes with temperature, so check your Smart Fortwo tire pressure when outside temperatures change. During colder months when temperatures drop, Smart Fortwo tire pressure will decrease also by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Maintain proper Smart Fortwo winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.
Smart Fortwo tire pressure should be checked when tires are cold, after the 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.
If your Smart Fortwo is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on. Ensure your 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.
