What is your Tire's PSI?

Well this morning I went and check my Tire Pressure on my Honda Accord 2014 and all 4 tires are at around 37.5 PSI, the temp outside is 30 Degree, I was kinda surprised because on the door panel, it say 33PSI front/back. So at 30 Degree its 37.5 PSI, So if the temp goes up to 60 Degree, it will be at around 40 PSI! wow that's like +7 PSI more than the Manufacturer's Spec. And I did a tire rotation like last month at a Honda Dealership, I can't believe they mess up my tire pressure like this... No wonder when I pass through any bump, I feel so rough inside the car.

I run 40 psi. Better mpg, longer tire life, sharper handling vs a slightly rougher ride.

And yes my tires wear evenly. The biggest enemy of tires is heat. Lower pressure means more tire flex during rotation and thus more heat. Low pressure is why all the Firestone tires failed years ago. Be much more concerned about the pressure being too low than too high.

Look in the owners manual of some German cars and they recommend around 32-35 psi for normal driving and around 40 psi for high speed driving.

Spend $15.00 or so and get a good tire pressure gauge. Check your tires when cold...tires, not ambient temperature.

I run 36 up front and 35 in the back. Much better handling and responsiveness imo, just a bit of a rougher ride over bumps and such but I don't mind. Gonna try running 40 like another member posted. But I get scared of psi getting too high due to heat lol, especially since my tires read max psi 40.

I second the notion of investing in a great tire gauge and checking them while they're cold. I check mine every two weeks and while I check the tires, I check the fluids once a month. I run 33 front and 32 rear most of the year and I bump it up 1 psi from the end of November until the end of February. I tried running 2 psi extra near the end of November and when it got warmer out(about 40 degrees) they got way over inflated and made for a bumpy ride.

Excellent point. A good tire pressure gauge is important and confirm it's veracity with another gauge.

I was running on the freeway and my TPMS light came on. As it turned out, it got upset by me riding in the wake of an 18 wheeler I guess. Scared me at 70 MPH so I pulled off (never on the side of the freeway) slowed down, flashers, and exited about half a mile, changed my undershorts, and all tires looked fine.

I used my tire pressure gauge in the glove box (of course) and all 4 were way high. Higher than expected even if "hot". Subsequent evaluation the next day when cold revealed that the gauge I keep in the garage was way off. My garage gauge was a good gauge, about $10 dial type. The digital and pencil gauges I compared it to were spot on.

You're good if you can tell 1-2 PSI. Is your gauge even that accurate?

if you run stock tires and wheels, the recommended tire pressure is generally 32-35psi.

if you run low profile tires, usually you run 35-40psi

Both my LX and Sport had about 40 in them when I drove them off the lot. Generally, I keep them at about 33-34, but might go up to 36 or so if I'm anticipating a drop in temps.
