My manual does not show it but typically around 33-34 psi is where you want to keep them on a sedan with 60 series tires.

You never need anything other than tires on the vehicle

If you read the sidewall of ALL TIRES ,you will see the
MAX Tire Pressure Rating

Stay a little below that

For most all vehicles 40# on front & 36 to 38# on rear
should do.

Most tires will have a max of 42#,45# or 50#

    If you want the best tire wear you can get,as well as milage
    you run near the max 40 to 42 #
    I have done that for 30 years
    You have to consider all the weight of the engine as
    well as the transaxle with front wheel drive
    Any pressure in the 20 & 30# range is not sufficent
    to support all that weight

Hello, you will find the pressure range on the tyre itself, on average the pressure would be 32psi, being a slightly lower profile tyre, 28-30psi would be more suitable if you wanted to be fussy.

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

I have a 1998 jeep Cherokee with cooper tires on the front what is the correct tire pressure for the jeep

its on all uSA cars , drivers door.
and in glove box operators guide, lost that. buy one.
look again? for sticker, it is there.
the door jam only covers stock sized tires.
and you didn't post that. P205/75-r15?
each tire made has a perfect pressure based on load on the tire.
every tire has chart for that. (all do)
if not a stock tire. you need a chart.
sold with 5 different tires sizes, says FSM book.

what is important is not driving with cupped or crowning tire treads
this is dangerous to do .
if unsure, do the chock test. (google "tire foot print chock test"
there are only 2 ways
1: the chart or door sticker facts
2: or chock tests.
30 PSI my be a good starting place on stock tires.

doing it right, avoids skids.
or worse careening..

What are recommended tyre pressures

tire pressure is a function of car weight and tire type.
since you didnt post car year, we cant guess that, can we.
for stock tires, in the USA< open door, see tire pressures clearly stated.
for non stock tires, that sticker is USELESS, (not stated)
so in that case you get to play car engineer.
using the offical loading charts on the tire.
My jeep , has this. and i Did that.
if you get the pressure wrong the tire treads cup or crown.
causing LOST TRACTION.
it's a balance this.

short answer, ask Goodrich. or get the data sheet on YOUR tire.
and read it.
it's there,

Right tire pressure for dmax

The recommended tire pressures by the manufacturer should on a sticker inside the passenger door frame or inside the glove box. These pressures are the right ones because the manufacturer considers ride,safety and handling on this vehicle and tire dealers do not. If you can't find those stickers, sometimes they're missing, call the dealer service and they should be able to give you that information. Hope that helps..

The sticker with the recommended tire pressure is missing

It is best to use the tire pressure listed on the tire itself. Look for the recommended tire pressure on the tire and also notice the max pressure and then adjust between the two for what gives you the desired ride.

Stock tire size

To see what size tire came on your vehicle from the factory, open the driver side door. The sticker will be either on the door, or car where the door covers. It has the recommended tire pressure also.

What are the tire pressures for a 1990 Buick

Look on the driver door or the pillar for the driver door. However as a store manager for a tire store I advised people to look the the tires you have on the car. The recommended pressure for the vehicle is with the tires the car came with. Some of the high performance tires take 40 or more PSI and if you set it to the vehicle pressure you will be running the tires too low. Look on the side wall of the tire. near the rim there will be a box with tire pressure max Set the tires about 3-4 PSI lower because as you drive the tires heat up and that will increase the pressure. If you under-inflate the tires the outside tread will prematurely wear, if you over inflate the tires the inner tread will wear out before the outer and you will loose traction. Hope this helps.
