Default Tire PSI ?

What PSI should my tires be ? Is it true for those who travel at higher speeds its recommended to increase the tires by 1-3 PSI ?

Your tires should have the max PSI on them, if not, check the owners manual. I dont know about the increased PSI for higher speeds.

It's either in the glovebox lid or inthe driver's sidefront door jamb. It is certainlyin the owner's manual. I prefer mine 3psi above recommendation so I go 35 front, 33 rear but mine is a 4 banger, your V-6 may differ.The max on the side of the tire is not the correct inflation pressure.

Shouldn't you run the recommended pressure listed on the door? That should be around 32psi, it will not hurt to run them at the max psi for a harder ride, most passenger car tires max out at 44psi. Good luck.

It's funny that I just saw this since I had an issue at Sam's Club last week. The pressure they set my tires at was 32 psi, which is what's on the door jamb. The Dunlops have 44 psi on the sidewall, and I argued that I've always run my pressure one psi less than max.

I called the tire manufacturer here's what they said; The number on the door of the vehicle is what's 'recommended' for that vehicle for all around ride, comfort, etc. But, setting the pressure (in my case) 14 psi less than max actually wears the tire worse, since it's running on the sidewall, which is the weakest part of the tire. They stated that by keeping the tire pressure one to threepsi less than max will give you a little stiffer ride, but will not void the warranty AND will give you better mpg. So, with that said, and gas at $3 a gallon, I'm keeping my pressures at 43 psi. Just my two cents worth. Dave

door psi is based on stock tires and stock sizes so if you have something different then door jam pressure's mean nothing....


BTW what lead you to a thread that's nearly a year old?

Honda engineered the car for the tire pressures on the door jam. Best riding, handling and tire wear. Pressures on the tire are do not exceed cold and nothing to do with recommended pressures. Yes better mpg at the expense of wear and tear on the suspension.A few more mpg is cheaper than new struts?

Running at or near the max on the tire is a bone jarring ride in my car......I don't know how you stand it.

Yes, responding to a thread nearly a year old is odd. But when you're stuck in a hotel for three weeks away from home attending training for work you end up with a LOT of time on your hands.
As far as the ride being rough, yeah, I feel it a little. I figure when I'm around 90 or so I'll lower my tire pressure so my ol' weary bones don't take a beatin'.
