Carr Subaru Auto Care FAQs: What Pressure Should I Inflate my Tires To?

Get answers about tire pressure for your Subaru

If you've been inflating your tires to the PSI indicated on the wall of the tire itself, think again! That number actually indicates the maximum PSI the tire can withstand under load, not the recommended pressure for everyday use. You'll find that number in your owner's manual instead.

Because of differences in vehicle weight, the same type of tire can be inflated to different pressures on different types of cars. For example, in typical weather conditions, the 2014 Subaru Forester should have its tires inflated to 35 PSI for each wheel. This holds true regardless of what type of tire you install on your vehicle! To get the maximum life from your tire, and to ensure maximum grip and control as you drive, have your tires inflated to the manufacturer's recommendation.

How Important is Proper Tire Pressure?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 11,000 tire-related car accidents happen every year - and the most common cause is poorly-inflated tires. Underinflated tires wear down rapidly and impart excess heat on the sidewall, weakening them and making them more susceptible to blowouts and other damage. Overinflated tires make poor contact with the road, and won't provide as much grip as you need.

That's why keeping your tires correctly inflated is crucial. The NHTSA also says that about 1 in 4 cars on the road have at least one tire that's severely underinflated. Keeping your tires properly inflated helps them to last longer, and will help you maintain grip and control even in poor weather.

Since they're the only part of your vehicle that actually touches the road surface, your tires are extremely important to your safety!
