Cool 2000 Hiace van - Recommended Tire Pressure?

2000 Toyota Hiace - Recommended Cold Tire Pressure?

Our nephew's, in the Philippines. Diesel, 2.4 or
2 aught, not sure. Driver's B-pillar placard lists
everything but cold tire pressure!

Guess they don't require that in other countries,
and cannot find this BASIC piece of info anywhere
online.

First, every light vehicle sold in the US has to have a vehicle tire placard which lists the original tire size and the specified pressure for that size. It's been that way since the 1970's. I am told this is true worldwide, and while I have seen plenty of examples that it is true, I don't know that for certain.

Please note: After 2008, that placard has to be on the driver's doorframe, but prior to 2008 the location wasn't specified, but typically it was on one of the doors or in a doorframe or in the glove box or on the fuel filler door or in the trunk.

Having said that, Tire Guides says a 2000 Toyota HiAce came with .......
Ah ...... Mmmmm ..... They don't have a listing. Does that mean the vehicle is over 10,000 pound GVW and not subject to the placard law?

So how about you tell us what the tire size is on the truck?

Vehicle is, per my O.P., in Philippines. Will check next time I'm there.

Sorry. Missed that.

But be sure to look for the vehicle tire placard. So far I have not seen any examples where a vehicle did not have one. If your nephew's vehicle is one, please take a photo of the sticker that lists the tire size. That will help all of us understand why there may be exceptions.

Hmmm, the best I could find is from here, very bottom. He'd want to confirm the tire size is the same though and that the tires installed can handle the pressures though before inflating them that high. If his version is a passenger van it may not have the heavy load light truck tires that those pressures seem aimed at. Maybe that's why the placard doesn't specify, because too many people swap out the tires for comfort versus cargo.

SMH..

Didn't think such confusion, as related to tires and pressures, would exist outside of the U.S.!
