Tire Pressure

05-21-2004, 04:15 PM
I drive a 1999 Honda Civic EX (CDN model, equivalent to LX model in US) and I have recently changed my original Firestone FR680 (P185/65R14 85S) tires to Bridgestone Potenza RE910 (P185/65R14 85T).

My question is what should the tire pressure be?

I have looked on the side wall of the Bridgestone tire and it says that the maximum air pressure is 44PSI.
I looked in the Bridgestone web-site, and they basically said that it depends on the car manufacture's recommendation.
I talked to my Honda dealer (the same ones who changed my tires) and they say too look in the stick tuck on my car. On that sticker it says that the front tires should be 30PSI, and the back tires should be 29PSI. It also says that it recommends tire size P185/65R14 85S, but my Bridgestone tires are P185/65R14 85T.

Should I follow these recommendations (written on the sticker)?

Thank you for your time...

Yes, but I like to use 3 to 5 psi above the sticker.

I get better fuel economy, better tire wear, better wet traction, better snow traction, better steering response, better tire durability, and only give up a bit of ride harshness.

I agree
