Got a question on air pressure in the tires...
Hey. i just got a manual gts. Last nite i went to the store and bought gauge to measure the air pressure in the tires. It show 26.5
On the sticker on the door it says that the pressure must be 220 (32). I feel like the tires are already overinflated. but according to the gauge, do i have to inflate them more?? thanks.

you need to have it set to the pressure on the door

make sure the gauge isn't broken or defective! thumbsup

yeah, if you want your tires to last, always check at least once a month and make sure they are set to the pressure indicated on the tire. thumbsup
