TIRE PRESSURES

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before checking and adjusting the tire pressures. See TIRE PRESSURE SAFETY.

For vehicles with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), inflate the tires to the advised pressures displayed in the instrument panel. The advised tire pressures are displayed in brackets in the instrument panel. See TIRE PRESSURE CHECK.

Confirm that the TPMS loading setting is correct. See VEHICLE LOADING.

When the tires are cold, inflate to the recommended cold tire pressures if either of the following conditions apply:

  • TPMS is not fitted to the vehicle.

  • The advised tire pressures are not displayed in the instrument panel.

See TIRE PRESSURE LABEL or refer to the table below.

Tire inflation procedure:
CAUTION

To avoid damaging the valves, do not apply excessive force or sideways pressure on the gauge and/or inflator.

CAUTION

To avoid damage to the TPMS valves, it is recommended not to use rigid tire inflation wands. Rigid tire inflation wands increase the risk of excess leverage and sideways pressure on the valve.

The following procedure should be used to adjust the tire pressures:

  1. Remove the tire valve cap.

  2. Firmly attach a tire pressure gauge and/or inflator to the valve.

  3. Read the tire pressure from the gauge and add air, if required.

  4. If air is added to the tire via a manual gauge, remove the gauge and re-attach it before reading the pressure. Failure to do so may result in an inaccurate reading.

    NOTES

    If the tire pressure is too high, remove the gauge and press the center of the valve to allow air out of the tire. Refit the gauge to the valve and check the pressure.

  5. Refit the valve cap.
