Tyre pressures

Post by piglet » Sat Mar 31, 2018 9:02 am

The old Hdi90 estate has the standard 195/65-15
I always ran them just under 40 all round, but Pigletson just fitted some Dunlops and checked the Haynes, that gives 33/35psi
Seems very soft to me.

Thoughts?

They should be on the data sticker on the driver's b-post.

If you're in doubt see how the tyres are wearing (using something more accurate than eye ball)

To be honest I run mine nearer 30 psi to give a better ride, have done for many years, and I still get 20-30k miles from them.

I used to keep my cars on 32psi, but moved it up to 36psi now as the 406 and other cars since have all been bigger heavier cars....
I don't suffer from abnormal tyre wear.

Good call, it's actually on the A pillar above the hinge.
All these years and I never bothered to see what it was.
And yes, 32/35 so I've been running too hard.

Worthy of a KB article? (Also handy for those build code questions), if anyone has the time.

We don't seem to have 'Sticky' threads, (I will have later - the grand kids are coming round). :roll:
