I would think so. P stands for passenger and LT stands for light truck. The store that sold the tires should be able to get the correct recommended pressure.
You went down from 17 inch to 14 inch rims ??

SOURCE: I just changed the oil

ok this can be done 2 different ways 1 , with the radio controls , should be in the owners manual , or the easier way , to reset the oil maintinence light , turn the key to the ON position , engine OFF , depress the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds and it will reset ,

now the tire monitor system , same deal should be in the owners manual , and done with the radio controls , or the easier way , turn key to ON position , engine OFF , cycle the parking lights 3 times within 5 seconds , (turn on - turn off = 1 cycle)

pretty cool huh? but make sure your tires were properly inflated before you reset the tire monitoring system .

you normally have different psi in the front than the rear is because of the weight difference.

SOURCE: 2006 Impala TPMS regularly reads tire pressures

The remote control door lock receiver (rcdlr) antenna and receiver are the most likely cause of your problem. If you remove the A pillar molding on the drivers side you should see the antenna attached with a push pin against the paint. You could try attaching the antenna ground to the pillar by cleaning the paint off and using a real screw to attach the ground.

The other fix is having the rcdlr, antenna, and transmitters replaced which will cost you some money. This bulletin number will help if the dealership will print it for you. 07-08-52-001C

00Linc ls tires P235-50R -17 running 40PSI LABEL IN DOOR SPEC 30PSI . Would like to no what to do don't want to damage tire.


because it is a low profile tire with a wide tread , the 30 psi is a recommended pressure for a standard size tire
however at 30 psi you will probably find that it will wear with an under inflated wear pattern and the 40 psi is used to sit the tread flat on the road
best talk with a good tire shop as they have experience and reports form a vast range of customers who talk about the pressures they run to get the best wear from the tires
the tires I run are standard and the recommended pressure is 32 psi but the make of tire actually runs best on 38 psi and that comes from the tire manufacturer

What are the tyre pressure of a ford focus 1.6 automatic 2014


Coming from someone who has worked for Chevy,Ford,and Chrysler dealerships we had to gauge the tires by what the sticker said on the door jam at the driver side..I disagree with it...It is always best to gauge tires with the outside temp because cold weather and hot weather make a huge difference...NASCAR racing can drop a tire pressure on one tire and raise it on another for better traction on the constant left hand turns...Just a 1/2 of a pound can make a huge difference..Tires tend to swell in hot weather and on long trips..another reason it normally says to gauge a tire while it is cold which means been sitting still overnight..It doesn't mean cold weather...However tires won't swell in cold weather...I like running 40 psi in tires if it says 32 or 35....this will give you a good flat even tire wear...I have always added 5 pound to whatever it told me to gauge it at...If a tire wears out on both edges it indicates low air ..,also tire alignment can wear one side of the tire....If it wears in the center it means too much air...It is hard to keep them perfect because of rotations..,weather ,and certain terrain but it can be done by checking them every month....Some tires have different pressures written on them that is different than the door sticker...To answer your question ...Add 5 pounds to the door sticker...,your tires will last longer..They won't last as long with door sticker pressures which will give dealers more tire business...Another thing dealers do is put nitrous in tires instead of air which is supposed to keep air from swelling and changing in the summer and winter...This is good..It isn't Nitro that explodes.....Always tell them to gauge them with your choice of tire pressure....

Well change your airfilterchange plugs and wires and air your tire up to like if they are a max 35 psi tire have 32-35 psi in them but if its a max 44psi tire keep at least 38-40 psi in them and some car tires are even as high as 51 psi keep at least 46-48 psi in these tires it will tell you on the side of the tire don't go on what the door panel sticker says for air.

Correct tire air pressure


On the driver door opening decal the recommened tire pressures if not there its in the rear door opening and it's in the owers manuel under tires. The kind of whells or options need to be obserbed as the differt options may have different recomended pressures and the rear may have a different than the fornt if all the stickers are gone and the owers manuel is too 32 PSI is a safe best bet some 50 or 45 series tires need as much as 45PSI never put more pressure in the tire than what it says on the sidewall but the maximun pressure is safe but might not give the best ride quailty

Tire pressure


Seance the car manufactures most likely did not produce the tires that are on the vehicle they will only give there recommendations as to the correct tire pressure. Always look around the perimeter of the tire and it will tell you the proper pressure for that tire. hope this helps. Good luck.

Tire pressure optimization setting


Look for a sticker on the drivers door panel. It will tell you what pressure to set for the tires. The owners manual may also contain this information. It is normal for a radial tire to look a little flat.
