Ok, as discussed in another thread, this can now be the reference point for tyre pressures (can threads be made sticky on this forum???)

I'll start.

1.4 TSI Manual on 19"

Yes. The spare wheel.

The figures above are for 19".

So your saying the 18" wheels are 125/70 profile? :lol:

Read the sticker again. This time a bit more carefully. The pressures in the box are for the wheels on the car. The writing underneath is the size of the spare wheel (the picture of the wheel outside the boot is a giveaway) then the writing to the right of this is the pressure it is supposed to be at.

(I'm lazy David, it's a tablet picture so I know how to hold it to post the picture straight up to avoid using a photo sharing site that corrects it, top of the device goes to the left, but obviously if tilted the in built spirit level plays havoc, but I do commend all the tidy pictures :))

Various threads on this; generally 18s seem to come with Bridgestone Turanzas; 19s with Kumhos; but not in absolutely all cases. :D

Ok at the risk of sounding like a real girl (which I am so I can get away with it ;) ) can anyone explain to me what is the difference between row 1 and 2 of the sticker, both showing 3 people and a light luggage load but row 2 also includes an "i" which seemingly makes 4 PSI difference.
I just want to know what PSI I am going to need in my 1.4TSI Excellence with 18" wheels.

Edited (my answer was wrong way round, lo :lol: )
JLO these pressures are (normally) if you want to reduce them to a level to improve grip by increasing the rolling resistance of the tyres, but should only be used ideally on a temporary basis e.g in snow, without winter tyres on.. Tyres under lower pressure create more friction with the ground. Think the technical part of the user manual will tell you more :D

I know I should really do a search, but I am feeling a bit lazy at the moment, so what do the 17s generally come with please?

Thanks! :)

Anyone checked their tyre pressures? Just did mine at the garage on the pay machine so pretty accurate, as wanted to set the monitor alarm. I was really surprised to find them all at 42 PSI. Mostly drive on my own with 18" performance wheels so should have been 36 PSI :eek:

I checked mine this afternoon. It was time I'd never checked them since I got the car in November. I was given the top of the range Halford digital pressure guide for Xmas which stores front and back target pressure. I use another Xmas present the electric pump which miss reads the pressure, always has, stops at desired value so add on the psi of what it's reading for the target. Have two other digital gauges to cross check.

The tyres were down by upto 1.5 psi which I sort of expected. Pumped them all up and pressed the set button on the cars menu. They might not have been correct in the first place.

(the DLR mod light came in handy since I turned them off whilst I had the engine on for the 12v power for the pump, so as not to confuse passing traffic that the car was on the move)
