Hey guys,

 

Can you just confirm for me the psi on the tyres for a 56' Reg focus?

 

Is it 30 on the front and 32 on the back?  Think one of my valves is bust as it doesn't seem to want to inflate.

 

 

Thank you :)

It depends on your tyre size but that sounds about right. Check here to see what your tyres are recommended:

You can always go up or down a few depending on how you like the handling.

There should be a tyre pressure chart listing pressures by tyre size and vehicle loading below the door catch on the drivers side B pillar.

The label looks something like this-

Pressures are always quoted for cold tyres, i usually add 2psi on top of my pressure to allow for warm tyres if i pump them up at a garage.

 

The pressures are listed in Bar (1 bar equals air pressure at sea level), pounds per square inch, and kilopascals ( .0001 bar).

I personally find it easiest to keep everything in psi.

My work car (Police dog carrying Focus estate) is recommended to 35psi rear and 32psi front due to a lot of weight in the back but my personal Focus is always set to 31psi front and back.
