Hi all altisans,need all yr expertise. what is the precise tyre pressure you put in yr tyres(16")?

the last time i did my alignment /balancing wasin oct, 2007 and only last week dec,07 when i fill in air into my tyres, i noticed my rear tyre (on driver side) had a lot of air need to be pumped...all other 3 tyres only needed slight air..the measurement reading shows in the middle bet. 200 & 300, ie 230 -240 psi...is it too much? (The machine i used was the old type.)
What will happen if overinflated, how to detect overinflated? If it is, then why the other 3 tyres does not hv this problem?

Need yr expertise....

hi kyong,

d recommendation is 210, however 1 can usually go up to 220 or 230, depends on how they like it to b as d driving feel will b different too

there cud b a small leak in d tyre dat needed more air n its better to get it check n mend but not sure on d old type of machine used... wat do u meant by dat?

overinflation causes uneven wear but on d bright side, it reduces FC, u may want to get urself a tyre pressure gauge to check d pressure from time to time

tcal, thanks. maybe there may be some leak on one of the tyres and good to check again frm time to time. the old type means the one with the manual setting and the "needle" pointing to the pressure level. nowadays petrol station has the digital one which i think is better and more accurate.

i dun trust the digital one where there can 'adjust' ur tyre pressure...

normally those machine are not maintained and i have come across those digital one that cause the tyre to be overinflated or underinflated...

the best thing is to get a good gauge and use the manual one for filling...
