Tyre pressure for non-stock sizes

Recommended Posts

I'm currently running 215/45/16 tyres on 7,5" wide 16" rims. According to the schema in the car I should run 2,3 bar front / 1,8 bar rear on 195/45/16.

 

But I figure it isn't necessarily correct for my slightly larger tyres (both wider and higher total diameter). Those anyone here know what to do for these situations?

 

In case you're wondering why I'm running non-stock size: It was the only size I could get the desired tyre in :-D

Size isn't everything. A bigger/wider tyre will just take more air at whatever PSI you pump in. Use the suggeted pressures and suck it and see. The pressures are comparative to the weight of the vehicle.

Thanks for the reply, I'll keep using stock pressure then :-)
