    Default Tyre pressure

    Many people recommend to have a tyre pressure of 30 for both the front and back tyres but according to Honda, there should be a tyre pressure of 32 in front and 30 in back. So should I go with the Honda recommendations or with the normal pressure of 30?

    Go with the inflation pressures written on the pillar at the driver's door on your car.

    if the sticker on the drivers door shows this then go for what honda says if you are running on stock tyre size.
    If everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane!

    tyre pressure is very important... as the cars are front engine and front wheel drive, the pressure in the front is required more so that all the four tyres have the same contact area.... as Pressure=Force/Area.... we want the area which is the contact area of tyres to the road or the "footprint" as you may say it, you want it to be same in all four tyres... so as the engine is front mounted, the force is more so tyre deformation is more in the front and lesser at the back... front tyres are inflated more so that footprint stays the same and rear tyres are inflated less so that contact area stays the same....but heavily inflated tyres are torturous to the suspension as the tyre is less likely to deform in case of any deflections so the shock experienced by the tyres is transferred straight to the suspension... Mr junaid is right.... 28psi in all tyres is fine for roads in pakistan as there are too much potholes and bumps... 28psi is not underinflated tyre and provides max traction.....

    That is fine for city. But for highway / motorway should be as prescribed by manufacturer.

    I keep to 30psi for within city driving.

    The reason that the manufacturer recommends higher psi in the front is due to the front mount engine which has already been nicely explained above.

    Either way, for within city driving, you should be ok.

    Default Tyre pressure

    You guys would be surprised to know that Mercedes normally recommends 32psi normal cold tyre pressure and 44psi cold tyre pressure when fully loaded in most of their cars in the chart company printed inside the fuel lid. some of their high performance cars have recommended 48psi pressure for speeds more than 100mph

    So the pressure can vary by manufacturers recommendation always follow exactly what's printed in the sticker if you using the correct tyre size and you won't go wrong
    If everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane!

    At the risk of drawing ire: I use 60 when driving my Civic (max sidewall 51), and 43 when driving my Cultus (max sidewall 35). When my dad drives the cars, he lowers the pressure to 30 in the Cultus and 40 in the Civic.

    These are cold pressures; the fuel station is about 1.5 km away from my house.

    I believe for bumpy roads, get it 28. Else go as the manufacturer says. City suspension is not that accommodating towards bumps so lower pressure helps you get some comfort and take off some toll on suspension springs and dampers
    Speeding does not kill anybody, it's suddenly becoming stationary that does so
