What's the proper tire pressure?
I'm not what the proper tire pressure for my car is, or if it even matters that much. The panel on the door says 29 psi. The tires say they can take up to 44 psi. Every other car I've driven has been 35 psi and the Honda dealership where I took it for maintenance filled the tires to 35 psi. Where should I keep it? Does it matter? What are the advantages and disadvantages of higher/lower pressures?
I'd run 30-32 and see how the car handles. More pressure will get your better MPG, but will bounce more, lose traction.
Hi Tom. You should definitely set your tires' cold pressure (i.e., <1 mile driven) to 29 PSI. It does matter. No other PSI will "improve" anything, but will create problems. Google "problems with under-inflated tires" or "problems with over-inflated tires" for more. S
34-35 Psi is better for durability of the tires.
