2012-Metal

Please Someone Enlighten Me With Tyre Pressure Figures

4 posts in this topic

hi everyone ive tried a little search on here with not much luck, i have a 2012 fiesta metal with the standard black 17's and factory fitted bridgestone potenza's on. the chart on the passenger side showing the air pressure for tyres is the most confusing ive ever seen. dont see anything hinting the slightest of PSI or even Bar value's. i call up the dealer service department and they turn round and say ye mate its your door entry just have a look there. 'as if i didnt know already'

could someone just tell me what the front an rear pressure's should be. thank you in advance to whoever replies.

kind regards

that chart can get get bit confusing lol, if you have the 205/40 R17 tyres fitted (which you should cause we both have the same car :) the tyre pressures are:

Front = 2.1Bar or 30psi

Rear = 1.8Bar or 26psi

These pressure are for normal load, if you want the high load tyre pressures let me know

thanks mate, appreciate it, well its on 32 all round at the moment which i thought personally is too much especially with no load. but the fronts looked ok and not overinflated with 32 in the fronts.
