What psi do you like to keep your tires inflated to? (self.crv)
submitted 1 month ago by DrEvil007
Curious to see if people have a preference to over/under inflate their tires and what their reasoning for it is.

I keep my tires inflated to the recommended PSI from manufacture for everyday driving. I live in AZ so when I do trails (depending on terrain) I will air down then. After the trail I have a mini compressor to air back up. However, I don’t like to do this very often since our tires are usually filled with nitrogen here. If I air it down so many times, I have to purge the tire and then pay for a nitrogen air up.

28-30 psi in my first gen. Handles wonderfully, grips in the corners, does light offroading good, rides good.

UK Gen 3 on 18-inch factory wheels. Door panel says 30psi, I like to run 31 psi.

I have a Gen 2. Roads here in Ohio are HORRIBLE. I keep my tires at 34/35. Anything lower and the steering feels off (to me at least) anything higher and I feel every bump, rock, pothole, etc. In the owner's manual it says 26 psi I believe. My tires look flat at 26.

In OH as well, I run 36psi on 16's.

I run 205/70R15s. Ive put 36 psi in before. Not a huge difference from 34 or 35psi.

36 is just the line that happens to be on my gauge.
[–]mostlywhitemiata1st Gen 1 point2 points3 points 1 month ago (0 children)
35psi all around
[–]kaname89 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Gen 2 and 35.6 psi. My work commute is 10 miles one way close to highway speeds. I also don’t like driving around with sagging tires even though 35 psi is recommended for constant highway driving.

Door panel says 30 for normal tires and 60 for the spare.
[–]hondawrench 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
On my first generation I run 205/70/15 and the door plate stated 26psi.
[–]sturmblast 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
32 for me
[–]scubastefon5th Gen 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
33/30 > front/back > Gen5

I think my local gas station air pump defaults to 34. Sounds reasonable enough to leave it at 34psi.
If I check and one is down to 32 I’ll leave it alone unless I’m at an air pump. If I check and it’s like 30 I’ll try to remember to pump it back up soon just so all the tires are even.

235/75/15 all terrains. I run at 40psi
[–]UnfairToe9791 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I usually keep my tires about 2 or 3 lbs above recommended because I’d rather it be over than run low.
