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.

Not in the trunk? Not under the spare tire? Somewhere in the last 14 years you may have lost it.

What is proper air pressure for nissan maxima 1996?

This depends on the tires that are on the vehicle. If you look around the perimeter of the outer sidewall of the tire it will say what maximum PSI should be. It is recommended that the tires stay at this pressure. Thanks for asking and please rate me.

I have a Nissan Maxima Problem with the Nissan Maxima 1997 Maxima I have a Nissan Maxima 1997 model the tyres size are P205/65R15. My question is Would Kumho 352 with rims diameter "16 fits on them?

If your wheels are 15" (you said they are) you cannot put a 16" tire on those wheels.
If the 16" ones are on wheels you need to physically check for proper clearance and offset so that they don't interfere with suspension or body parts. If the tire height on the new tires is higher than the originals it will put additional stress on the driveline and could cause problems. (it adversely affects the mechanical advantage you get from the differential gears)

I have TPMS on 2009 Nissan Maxima. Can't find where I can check my tire pressure through the TPMS. Manual says I can but I can't find where to. PLEASE HELP!!!

Check the tire pressure at the valve mounted to the wheel. There is a warning light on the instrument cluster to warn of low tire pressure. On a 2009 Maxima, if your warning light comes on check and adjust, if needed, the tire pressures at all 4 wheels. If the pressures were low the light will go out after a short distance. If the light fails to go out take the Maxima to your local Nissan dealer.

How to turn off the maintenance tire light

Check the tire pressures and add air if needed. In cold weather the air in the tires can contract and cause this light to come on. If adding air to the correct pressure does not fix the issue. Its probably a bad TPMS module in one of the wheels. Have you changed tires recently?

Just replaced the tires on my 2001 nissan maxima with the exact same size of tire and now the car went from a nice stiff ride to a floating bouncing ride any ideas why??

Just because a tire is the same size doesn't mean that it has the same properties as the tire removed from the car. Sidewalls in some tires are much softer than in others. Double check tire pressures, they could be low. My guess is that the sidewalls in the new tires are a softer construction.
