Exclamation Correct Tyre Pressure For Upsized Tyres

I am really surprised to have not found a thread discussing this on Team-BHP...

Well, i want to begin this thread to gain knowlege on the correct tyre pressures after upsizing your tyres.


Q1. Does upsizing your tyre (Rubbers or Rims) make a difference to the tyre pressure?


Q2. If Yes, How?


Q3. If Yes, then what should be the new tyre pressure?


[Example - 165/80 R14 upsized to 205/55 R15]

Whatever your size of tyres if is generally recommended to stick to manufacturer specified pressures.

Oh and there are plenty of threads that discuss this. For eg.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...-pressure.html (The right tyre pressure?)

You need to know where to look.
