[WHEELS] Tires - How To Check Pressure
How To Check Tire Pressure
From MustangWorld.com

Quote:
You hear a lot about performance parts on the web, but the most important part of your whole mustang are the tires. Reeves Calloway likes to quote that "every component in a car is in place to make the tires work better... driver included" This is very true. We wanted to show you some tire tips and other info.

Yes, I know that "its a mustang site... blah blah blah"... But most of the same information can be used on our Celica as well. Good information is good information.

How much air should I put into my aftermarket performance tires?

For performance street tires you should inflate your tires to the specification imprinted on the side of your tires when your tires are cold (unless noted). This is CTP Cold Tire Pressure. Drive to the nearest service station or use an air compressor at home to inflate your tires.

Your air pressure gauge will always show a higher pressure than normal if you check a HOT tire.

I have 195/60R15 Bridgestone Potenza tires on my 2003 Celica GT. I don't there is a recommended tire pressure listed on the tire. There is a maximum psi, which 44psi, on the tire. What tire pressure would you recommend?

Those are the stock tires which Toyota uses on most all base model Celica GT - Open your owner's manual -- or better yet, for most vehicles, check the sticker on your driver's side doorjam body -- and it will tell you exactly the recommended tire pressure.

I have Yokohama tires that say 44 PSI max. Does this mean I should fill it to 44 PSI every time I check the air, or is there a certain pressure that is recommended?

I have BF's on my 2k GTS

Played around with it a bit and found 34psi in the front and 36psi in the rear a good setup.
