Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Coupe

1 Answer

Tire Pressures: My tires show the Max pressure as 35Psi. Inside the door of my vehicle, the recommended pressure is listed as 28Psi. How do I know what the "optimal" pressure is to run in my tires? Is it somewhere in between? Please give me a little help on this matter and give me a place to start. Thank you

A car that size I would run 32 psi that is pretty much standard tire pressure for any car. 28 seems a little low to me. Air them up to 32 psi. If you know your alignment is good check the tire wear and see if they are wearing even and adjust tire pressure from there. If the middle is wearing and not the sides lower it.

Recommended tyre pressures

NEVER use the pressure rating on the tire. That is only the recommended MAX pressure that tire can take. The only tire pressure you should follow is located on the placard either on the inside of the door under the latch, or on the door jam under the latch receiver. Using the tire pressure on the tire can result in poor performance, traction, tire blowouts, uneven tire wear, and poor gas mileage. The manufacturer factors in details the tire could never know, such as weight of the vehicle, alignment specifications, and performance of the vehicle.

What is the right tire air gauge of 1998 sunfire?

Tire pressure should be within 5 psi of the tires recommended max pressure but never higher. All tires have there max pressure stamped on the sidewall of the tire. Never go by the vehicles recommendation for tire pressure, always go by the tire. Some tires have different pressure recommendations than others. 35psi is most common- but some car tires rec. 44psi or more.

What is the recommended air pressure in the tires P215 70 R15

It is probably between 32 and 35psi. If you open the drivers door and look in the jam there will be a placard listing the recommended tire pressures. If it's not on the drivers door it may be on one of the passenger doors.

Tire pressure sensor fault goes on while driving

Tire pressure always changes...
when you drive your vehicle for a long period of time the tires' temperature goes up along with the
pressure in your tires, the molecules in the air inside your tires get excited (hot)
when your vehicle is immobile for a while your tires' temperature goes down along with the
pressure in your tires, the molecules in the air inside your tires get compacted (cold)
This is the best time to get a true PSI reading from your tires....
the recommended tire pressure on most tires should be set at 35PSI
But there might be a problem with your sensors, I work with TOYOTA their sensors are set up to
where when the PSI on your tires drops below the 35PSI, the tire pressure light would then
come on.
You should also check if your spare tire comes equipped with pressure sensors, which in most cases
they do, depending on the type of tire the PSI on spare tires will usually range from 35PSI- 80PSI
you can check your owners manual for this, or simply read the recommended PSI written on the
tire.
