For additional information regarding how much weight your vehicle can carry, and an example of the
Tire and Loading Information label, see Loading the Vehicle section of your owners manual.

How you load your vehicle affects vehicle handling and ride comfort. Never load your vehicle with more
weight than it was designed to carry.

When to Check:
Check your tires once a month or more. Do not forget to check the compact spare tire, it should be at
60 psi (420 kPa).

How to Check:
Use a good quality pocket-type gauge to check tire pressure. You cannot tell if your tires are properly
inflated simply by looking at them. Radial tires may look properly inflated even when they are
under-inflated. Check the tire's inflation pressure when the tires are cold. Cold means your vehicle has
been sitting for at least three hours or driven no more than 1 mile (1.6 km).Remove the valve cap from
the tire valve stem. Press the tire gauge firmly onto the valve to get a pressure measurement. If the
cold tire inflation pressure matches the recommended pressure on the Tire and Loading Information
label, no further adjustment is necessary. If the inflation pressure is low, add air until you reach the
recommended amount.

If you overfill the tire, release air by pushing on the metal stem in the center of the tire valve. Re-check
the tire pressure with the tire gauge.

Be sure to put the valve caps back on the valve stems. They help prevent leaks by keeping out dirt
and moisture.
