Proper Tire Air Pressure Of Collora S 2001
Posted 29 September 2008 - 08:26 PM
I bought Collora S 2001 3 weeks ago. Today I tried to adjust the tire air pressures, I couldn't find the description of proper ones however.
So can anyone tell me what is the proper air pressure?
My model is Collora S 2001.

The manufacturer recommended tire pressure is 32 PSI all around. There should be a stiker or something inside the glovebox or on the driver's side door with the tire air pressure.
This also assumes that you are running OEM tires or OEM sized tires with a comparable tire. Once you run an aftermarket tire - tire pressure may change slightly. Also your given driving condition and vehicle use could require a slightly higher or slightly lower tire pressure. I would recommend running no LESS than the manufacturer rated tire pressure - and no more that the MAX cold tire inflation pressure that is stamped on the sidewall of the tire itself. If you drive primarily on highways and the roads are in good shape - you could benefit from slightly higher tire pressures (stabilizes the tire carcass, improves steering feedback, improves overall fuel economy, maximizes tire tread life).
The correct tire pressures will yield the most consistent tire tread temperature for a given driving situation. If you have the time and patience - you could find the "correct" tire pressure by filling the tire to within a few PSI of the max cold tire inflation, then adjusting the tire pressure 2PSI at a time until you find the best compromise of ride quality, car handling, and fuel economy. Drive until tire gets up to operating temperature, adjust tire temperatures only when the tires have completely cooled down. If this seems like too much of a hassle - then set the tire pressures to the manufacturer rated tire PSI and you should be OK.

However when I asked Toyota dealer, she also told me that 30 PSI is proper to my car.
So I will adjust tire puressure to 31 PSI between you and her
Anyway, thank you very much!
