I got some RT rims and used tires, the rims are in good shape, but the tires are going to be changed soon. meanwhile, since my 2000 neon does not have the tire size of 195/50/16 on the tire-pressure label, what is the correct psi for these tires? i inflated them to 32psi as i did with my old 14s, yet i feel the side wall is sagging a bit especially at the front tires .....

so what should be the correct PSI level ?

thanks,

32psi. It's prbably just a cheaper tire with not as stiff of a sidewall.

I normally inflate to 38 or 40 psi.

Max psi on my tires is 44. Recc. psi on the sticker is 32.

So I split the difference. :)

anywhere between 32 and the max pressure on the tire is safe. i put mine at about 35, sometimes 37 or 38.

remember to check tires cold and that all tire pressures listed, whether on the tire or the door, are cold pressures. you should expect an increase of atleast 3 or 4 psi on a tire that has been driven on.

I usually run 35 in all my tires. I have 205/55R/15's on my 2000 ES. :D
