I wondered if anyone can help.

I have been looking for tyre pressures for my X reg 2001 ford fiesta.

I have found many conflicting pressures across the web and its left me at a total loss!

I have found things such as:

Loaded:

Front 36 - Rear 26

Speed:

Front 36 - Rear 40


Is that anywhere near right? I mean isn't 40 a bit much for a little car?

Thanks for your help in advance :)

Your best bet: 35psi on all tires. If you're loaded...it will suffice. And if you're driving alone...not a problem.

I use 26psi on the rear and 28psi on the front on my Fiesta. Its not far off the recommended pressures AFAIK.

Decisions decisions.....

I need air in my drivers side really badly but feel spoilt for choice with my tyre pressures! lol

The general feel is:

rear 26
front: 28-34


So I might give rear 26 front 30 a whirl and see how that goes!

Thanks for all your input, much appreciate chaps :)

Shouldn't make much difference. Over 30psi and you will have less grip on the front and the steering will be too light.I would say the same goes for the rear as well.

Usually theres me, the missus and my daughter in the car but I've always kept the same pressures regardless of the cars load.

I just did it, it was 22 on the back and 24 on the front, its now 26 back 28 front.

Im gonna have a spin later, so hopefully it feels nicer lol

Thanks for the input :)

EDIT:

Took it out for a spin and it was so much better, I used Rookwise's pressures and you could feel the difference especially over speed humps!

Im taking it out loaded tomorrow so I can see the other side of things :)
