  • Proper Tire PSI

    Any good place to find out proper Tire pressure setting? My tires are belted radial I believe they say. They are 215 70r14.

    Thanks!!

    Because your car did not come with radials from the factory there is no chart you can look up that tells you what it should be. 32 psi is the most common starting point. If you notice wear on the outsides of the tread then you want to increase it slightly. If you notice wear on the center of the tread you want to decrease it. Never go above the MAX psi that is marked on the tire.

        Kirsten agree with John that 32 PSI is standard for this tire size.
        They are 215 70r14
        It is also recommended to rotate your tires ( cross over front to back ) to blend the wear on the treads. I rotate on my 58 every two (2) years as there is not a lot of mileage out on.
