Tire Pressure

Find your Tire Pressure

Your recommended psi will be located on your placard, as well as your vehicle’s manual. The manual may also have additional information for alternate tire pressures based on loads and speeds.

Placards on most newer vehicles are now typically located on the driver’s side doorjamb or the rear edge of the driver’s side door. If these areas are unavailable or too narrow for a placard, you will find it next to the driver’s seat on the inward facing surface.

Placards on earlier vehicles can be found in one of the following areas:

  • Driver’s side door/doorjamb
  • Rear Passenger doorjamb
  • Fuel Filler door
  • Glove box
  • Center Console door
  • Engine compartment

Measuring your pressure

Always measure your tire pressure at their coldest. Your vehicles maximum recommended tire inflation pressure is only valid when your tire is cold. As a tire warms up, whether from being in a garage, sitting in the sun or during use, it’s inflation increases temporarily. Do not adjust your tires based upon pressure readings taken from warm tires. Remember, using the correct tire pressure can help save fuel and keep you safe on the road.

Using Nitrogen

Why fill your tires with nitrogen instead of oxygen? Oxidation begins the moment a tire is expose to air and over time causes the rubber to deteriorate, become brittle, lose its elasticity and strength. Using nitrogen gas will protect the interior of your tire and provide a more consistent air pressure during dramatic temperature changes.
