Just run at least 35 in the winter. You will need it on cold days.

Whats the tire call for? If your at the correct pressure it could be a bad sensor. If so pm Jontoad, he can get them and install for half the price of a dealer.


Shit I spoke to soon.

its normal for the pressure lights to go on when it starts getting cold...its like what others said, only it isnt just moisture, but the air itself gets "smaller" when i gets colder... hahah you could try filling your tires with nitrogen, they say you won't have these problems then...

tires don't call for pressures. they only list max pressures. this is because it can be used on many cars.

always go by the door plaque for stock sizes and the Michelin fitment and pressure guide for upgrading wheel sizes. shawn you should be running about 45psi in your 22's.

but it depends what type of driving or load is on the tire too...

Thanks bro, I learn something new everyday. I always have filled tires to what it says on the tire. To be honest I cant remember the last time I checked pressure on my 22's. They have never looked low so I just drive.

Hence why you should not go by what the tire says.
