Lightbulb The Right tyre pressue

Hi,

Does anyone have the list of the right tire pressures based on the tire sizes. It would be of great help.

I have 205/60/R15 Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD2 and am currently using 35 pressure for them. I wanted to know the right pressure setting for different tire sizes.

Thanks in advance

to start with u need to know the oe size and oe recommended tyre pressures. if u are going lower profile than OE, then u will have to compensate with higher tyre pressures.

start with 1 or 2 psi more and go up if required.

there is no fixed pressure for each size of tyre. it all depends on the car, road conditions, driving style etc..

if u find the suspension working too hard on the same road at the same speed as before (when on oe tyres) u need to increase the tyre pressure further.

u need to take this very slowly - if u have too low tyre pressure, the tyres will wear out quickly, and so will the suspension as it will be working too hard.

if u have too high tyre pressures, u will have very less grip as u will be bouncing around everywhere.

also keep in mind the highest recommended tyre pressure for each model of tyre (is mentioned on the tyre sidewall).

as the aspect ratio goes down ...the tire pressure should be increased...BUT NEVER FILL LESS THAN YOUR OE TIRES!!!!!!

I put 32 on my 195/60 tyred swift - suggest you start there and move upwards.

Tried 34 on the City Vtec for a laugh - it was like a dog on heat, jumping up and down....so was the old man when I told him!!!! -(I mean the jumping part!)

For all practical reasons...You were to drive the car to Chennai for track. 34 would have gone to 36 by the time you reached track....not to mention your back side's condition..
