Normally anywhere from 32 psi to 40 psi. To know exactly what your vehicle calls for look inside the door panel. There will be a label there that shows load and pressure ratings for all of your tires. If you do not see the label look on the tire itself. There will be a psi rating on the sidewall of the tire.

35psi is standard for all tires. If you want better handling at higher speeds bump this up by 5psi. Just remember when doing this your tires will wear out faster. Most police cars have all their tires anywhere form 40-45 for better handling on high speed pursuits and handling calls. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you out with anything else.

SOURCE: Losing Tire Pressure for left rear tire repeatedly

most likely there is a small hole or crack in the tire, and when you drive the rubber gets hot and losens up allowing the hot air inside that is expanding to escape. my recomendation is to replace the tire. better safe than sorry when it comes to tires. good luck to ya

SOURCE: tire pressure

Primarly It will just be a more bumby ride.
You may have after market tires - not the originals that reqiure different pressures. So check the tire side for max pressure limits.
36 lbs sounds safe and ok for me.

Tire pressure light comes on when tires are okay. Can I reset something myself so it doesn't?


You are right, the pressure sensors can be affected by temperature. If its below 10 Degrees there is a chance they will malfunction, I had a similar problem on my Jeep Wrangler and it required a heated garage for an immediate rectification. Alternatively, some tire shops have a computer which can communicate with the tire pressure sensors and reset the sensors once they determine that the correct air pressure has been applied to the tire.

Vehicle shakes at 40 mph


Could be alignment struts or tires. If it pulls to one side and your front tires are warn on the inside more then its most likely alignment. If your tire pressure is low that could also be the reason. If you hear a "clunk" sound or a knock when you are driving over bumps its your struts. I would check your tire pressure first. Tires usually are supposed to be at 38-40 psi for most cars and midsize suv's and trucks. Also using a different tires ( one or more different types or brands on the same vehicle) can cause this as well. And always make sure they are all at the same air pressure and none of your balancing weights have come off.

I have a ttpms light on in my car. what does that mean?


If it is on steady it means you need to check the air pressure in your tires. If you open the drivers front door there will be a sticker that says what the tires are supposed to be inflated to. If one tire is low and the others are fine you have a leak and need to get the tire looked at for a repair.

If it is blinking it means there is a problem with the TPMS system and needs to be looked at by a shop that is capable of diagnosing this system.

TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

Tpms light came on what is this


TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. You should check the pressures in your tires and adjust accordingly. If you don't know what they are supposed to be set at open your drivers door and there should be a sticker that has tire sizes and the pressure the front and rear should be set to.

We just had new tires put on the front of our 2005 freestar and the light keeps coming on even after reseting it numerous times what do we do?


if the pressures are ok, and the reset procedure does not fix it, it is likely that one of the sensors became damaged during the tire change. you should return to the service center that changed the tires and have them check it out.

before that, check that ALL FOUR of your tires are set to 35 psi. the system works on pressure differentials (not just low pressure) so make sure ALL the tires are set equally. also note that some systems may also have a sensor in the spare tire, and can cause the light to come on also. please check the door tag on your van to confirm what the pressures are supposed to be set at. good luck!

What is the tire air pressure supposed to read?


with P185/60R15's should be inflated to 32 psi front 35 psi rear, except for 1999 models where it's 32 psi front and rear. But have a look just inside your door frame or glove box for a placard with the info on it

What is the correct front and rear tire pressures for a 1999 Z24 Cavalier convertible. Our driver side door was replaced and the sticker is missing.


I think there is another other sticker in the back cover of the spire tire cover in the trunk, but you can go by the the tire pressure label on the tire it self and run the rear tire pressure 4 pounds less then the front. The front always have more since that is where the engine is and the rear has no weight so a softer tire will keep the rear end from hopping around bumpy corners. I believe the proper tire pressure on the Z24 if it's the correct tire is 42 lbs cold front and 38 lbs cold rear if you like the performance feel and if you like the softer feel, then drop it by 6 lbs both front and rear. Good luck and hope this helps.

Ideal tire pressure 2005 ford ecape limited


the manufactor puts a sticker on the passengers side rear door with recommended tire pressure.if you want a smoother ride then decrease the rear tires by 2 lbs,so if the front is supposed to be 35 lbs,put 33 lbs in the rear.try to keep the 2 rear tires the same exact and the two front the same to keep the tires from wearing un-even..unless you have a air pressure monitor in the system that lets you know when your tires need air,this way feels better.The reason for the difference from front to back in pressure is because of the weight of the engine.
