  • Tyre pressure help

    Couple of quick questions.... I'm away from home so don't have the manual to hand, so go easy on me!

    First, what tyre pressure should I be running on 225 35 18s? Is there a sticker in the car that tells me this?

    Second, how do I reset the tyre pressure monitor thingy after I've put the correct pressure in? Do I press and hold for a few seconds?

    Cheers

          Yeah, I put that in today - but there was nothing inside the filler cap??

          And is it just me, or does 38psi seem a bit high??

          What's everyone else running on 18s?

              The general psi on Tyres is about 32. Alterations are down to the car load and personal pretence if for performance. Should have all the pressures in the manual though mate.

                  As I said it depends on the car and it's load, performance etc. Just go by the manual mate unless you are certain of any benefits to be made from different pressures. Which I'd love it if you could even see a difference on the road from 1-2psi difference.

                          It depends what version of the manual you have. The more recent manuals state 38psi front, 35psi rear for up to 3 people for 18" wheels. Earlier manuals stated the lower 35/32 pressures.

                            Mine states 38 front 35 rear which I use no probs.. Puttin it at 32 Wud surely be a bit risky being as it's a lot lower pressure?
