Tires

(2005 Toyota Camry)
in Bronx, NY on February 04, 2010
recommended tire pressure 29psi,so why do the sidewalls bulge so much?looks like tires are riding sidewalls instead of treads,Is this normal?More air gives a rough ride but tires dont bulge. but a rougher ride.

What does your owners manual say? 29 seems a bit low, but verify it with your owners manual. I would use 32 psi. That is what I use in my Camry with Michelin tires and it works great. There will be a little bulge, but not too much.

Owners manual says 30psi and I have yokohama tires,will try 32psi to see if there is a difference, thanks.

My shop owner says use 10% less than max. p.s.i. on the tire sidewall. ie. I use Yokohama AVID on 2000 Maxima 44 p.s.i. - (10%)=39.6 psi. I run 38 psi & tire wear is 32K miles. Prorated for the second set since they're warranteed. 2000 Maxima handles well at this psi.
