Tyre Pressure For Low Profile Tyres

11 posts in this topic

I bought a Mk3 Focus about 3 months ago, it was 6 months old and had 3K miles on the clock.

It's got low-profile tyres - I just wondered whether the recommended pressures for these would be different from the pressures on the inside of the drivers door?

Thanks :)

Hi, whatever is in the manual or on the door will be correct....

You are right - my tyre specs were on the door along with the recommended pressures. I'd posted on here without checking it first. ;)

This is a picture of my tyre pressure indicator by the driver door. I went with 31 front and rear.

+1 I put 35psi in all four tyres feels strange doing it though because the 16" took 38psi
