Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts

I just change my old tires for new Michelin Defenders. The tire I replaced them for were Michelin Pilots & I'm sure the Pilots were the OEM tires. The sticker on the drivers door says to set the psi to 33 & I believe the same psi was listed on the sidewall of the Pilots. I bought the new Defenders at Costco & when I drove off the lot & checked the tire pressure using the onboard menu, the pressure on all 4 tires was 38. The sidewall on the Defenders says 44 psi. What does everyone think I should set the tire psi to on these Michelin Defenders? Thanks

Nope...tire pressure on the door label is the recommended cold tire pressure.  Perfectly normal for the tire psi to go up as the tire gets hotter.
