Tire Pressure
« on: August 07, 2011, 04:57:06 pm »
I am still  newbie here and trying to get into posting more but my question right now is what would be the optimum tire pressure for standard tires on the avie?  I have a 2004 model one owner previously with about 50K miles on it.

There's a sticker on the inside of the driver's door that gives GM's recommended tire pressure for the stock wheel/tire combo (265/70/17). I believe they recommend 30 psi. I personally think that's too low. I always ran 35 psi in my stock combo. I've currently got V-speed rated 275/55/20's on it and I run 32 psi in them. Between the shorter sidewall and the stiffer V-speed rated tire it rides quite a bit stiffer than the stock 17's did.

x2 with the 35psi in a stock size unless it's an LT tire. Look at the sidewall to find out if it's a p275/...  or an LT 275/...

WHERE IT REALLY IS ABOUT THE FRIENDS AND AVY'S, AND NOT THE ALMIGHTY ADVERTISING DOLLAR!

265/70/17 Cooper CTS on mine have 44psi on the sidewall. I usually run 46psi in front and 44psi in the back. I've had good results with them wearing flat across.

The Bridgestone Dueler Revos say the same thing but that is for a maxxed out load. I usually run 35-38 in them.

Should also mention that you should check tire pressure when the tires are cold.
