what is the recommended tyre pressure for winter conditions


the same as during the summer. look on your tires and test the pressure to see if it's close to the maximum psi, they are good, refill if the pressure is troo low.
the air is compressed when it's cold and expands as it gets hot. check your tire pressure every week and especially when the temperature changes like the cold winters and the hot summer.

What fuel is best for my Chev Malibu, 2003. I live


Standard 87 octane is all that car requires. You will gain no benefit from using mid or top grade fuel.

Most passenger car tires are run between 32 and 35 psi, regardless of season. You can look at the side of the tire to find what the max cold psi pressure is. You will normally find that it is 35psi.

As for summer/winter tires. If the wobble only happens when the snow tires are installed, and not with the summer tires, that obviously eliminates the car as being the problem. Do you have your summer and winter tires mounted on different sets of wheels, or do you swap the tires every season on the same wheels?

If they are on different sets of wheels, then the winter tires are out of balance, have some sort of damage to the carcass of the tires, or you have a bent wheel. If you are using the same wheels and swapping the tires every season, then you need to have your winter tires balanced and see if it solves the problem.

need to lower the tire pressure of Toyota Tundra ?


What was the problem you faced when you tried to lower the tire pressure? Why would you need to lower the tire pressure unless 1 tire was over filled if it was low to begin with? You do NOT need to change the tire pressure for summer or winter months. The tire pressure amount should be the same all year.

Tire pressure.


The tire pressures to use are i your user manual that came in the glovebox. If you no longer have this, buy a 20 dollar manual, which I buy for every car I own and it wil tell you.

If you need an answer to get you by, use 35 psi until you find out exactly what it should be. You may even want to stay with this pressure, as most car manuals wil give you temps for winter and summer, and for different driving conditions, when 35 psi will serve you just fine. If you begin to notice your tir wear is not even, take it to a shop and find out what is wrong with it. You will probably need an alignment.

Also many tires wil tell you on the side, the safe tire inflation pressures, but I have found that 35 psi is a good number to run for just about any passenger car.
