yeah pretty much 35 psi, check your tires though.

32 psi

is 35 psi,check psi cold,like first thing in the morning,put psi at 30,when you are driving heat builds up in tire causing tire pressure to rise,then the tire is over inflated at 30 psi it will rise to 35 psi and your tires will last longer.

should be on the side of the tire unless you've been fighting with curb

40

the recomended tire pressure is on the sticker on the drivers door or on the trunk lid ,but it will be 30 psi

it depends on what tire it is because there are different sizes but 35-40 for most

30-32 i would assume... each car is different. The recommended tire pressure is NOT marked on the sidewall of the tire. you will find it on the inside of the door next to the latch, or on the door frame... most vehicles that size are roughly 30-32, although there are a few odd balls that are 35. Just check your door frame, running this pressure will get you the best over-all wear.

32 to 35 psi

it all depends on your tire size if its a 205 70r 14 you run 33 psi if its a 205 70r 15 you run 35 psi

A lot of people seem to think the tires on his lumina were specially made for only his car. The tire pressure on the sidewall is the max recommended pressure FOR THE TIRE, not for the vehicle. The sticker on the driver's door will tell you what the manufacturer (in this case GM) recommends for air pressure. This will give you the smoothest ride, best fuel economy, and make your suspension last longest. An example is VW's Jetta. The tires say 44psi. VW recommends 28 to 30 psi depending on load in the vehicle. These cars eat upper strut mounts like no tommorrow. Why? Cause people think their "performance" tires should be at 44 psi. Good for my line of work.

ok there are mixed posts on here of incorrect and correct tire information. Combination of factual information. 1. Look on the sticker inside the door. (the tire pressure is the max on the tire and not correct for all cars) 2. Air your tires in the morning or after it has been sitting for awhie. If i remember right it is 35 but it might be 32. hope this helps.

Good Luck... I've been arguing with the people here about the tire pressure not being on the side of the tire since I first started posting on this site. Most are so head strong they would run head first into a brick wall to prove the point... and no they don't realize that running into a wall doesn't help their point. But Hunter is RIGHT... Chevy's usually have the tire tag in the driver's side door pillar... Some other cars will have it under the hood, in glove box, or on the inside of the fuel door. On no vehicle does the sidewall say what pressure the tire should be set at... It's specific to the vehicle not the tire! In some cases the tire sidewall isn't close... Example is my Axiom... tires say 40 psi, but the car takes 26 psi... And no it doesn't get better mileage at a higher pressure, actually gets worse (screws up the balance of sprung and unsprung weight that the car is designed to drive with).

there should be a sticker on the inside of your dore frame on the driver side with the date load carring capasity... the tire presure is listed there as well. you can go buy the side of the tire but some tires go way beoned the recomended for the car. if u question my ansewer i work a tire shop.
