    Usually it will be any where b/w 26-32 for our sedan/ hatchbacks

    I keep 28 in all tyres in summer and 30 in winter, For highways, it goes down to 26 for better grip on high speeds
    Thank you so much, u own city brother?
    i m concerned about there comfort as i want the ride should be smother not stiffer.

    right now i hv 30 psi in all tyres, so what you recommend me.??

    if i choose to go 28psi in all tyres does it make any difference in fuel consumption?

    i usually keep 32 throughout. Nissan sedan
    at 32 i feel, better agility. Tires are 215 something Nexen
    Previously used to put 30/31 in front and 32 in rear. 30 and under, tyres seems a but deflated.

    Moreover 32 is a safe bet, underinflation is dangerous due to excessive heat production via friction. The Max PSI stated on sidewall does not refer to the Max PSI you should have, it is what the Max PSI that particular Tyre can handle without danger.
    The reference on the door side of vehicles is usually for the size and tyre provided, so if you tend to change the tyre, the Air pressure reference is not totally relative then.
    Moreover low PSI gives more bodyroll, sluggish turning, increases the braking distance and load on the front shocks when you press the brakes due to more flex in rubber, although increases grip but generates more heat and is prone to damage. Anything upto 36 wont hurt, under 28 i suppose is pretty low, and i dont buy the tire pressure reference on local vehicles at all.
    In summers the tire does heat up, and i suppose you might get an increase of 1 or 2 PSI in hot weather, so ill be keepin 30 or 31 then.

    thank you so much bro for your details analysis.
    after getting info from you ill keep it as 30PSI both rear and front as i don't want to compromise on smother ride,although Yokohoma tyres relatively known as softer tyres so i have a good smooth ride now with 30 PSI.

    If you're using the stock size then use the company recommended pressure i.e 27 psi
