Tire pressure

My door sticker says "normal" tire pressure is 36 psig all around.
I typically go about 10 % higher for a firmer ride and a possible slight MPG increase.
Right now I'm running 40 psig. (Tires are safe to 51 psig)
I'll go back down to 36 - 38 once the ice and snow season settles in around here.

Interested to know what everyone else is running.

As stated on the door jam - 36 PSI. Is the MPG difference real or imagined (ie is it measure able?).

I try to always stay towards the top side, too. In my F-150, when I am towing, I go to near the absolute maximum pressure. In my sports cars I try to stay right at the recommended pressure. No matter what, one DOESN'T want to run low pressure at all.

Perusing the posts re tire pressure, I generally keep all tires about one pound over the pressure I want (factory figure on door panel in winter, + 2 lbs in summer) to allow for possible variance in the gauge (Accu-Gage with dial, very accurate), possible loss of air when disengaging the chuck, and for the fact that all tires lose some air over time.

@ 36 PSI I find the front tires roll too much on the edges of the tread. +2 PSI seems to fix that and tire wear seems normal.

Tire pressure is to be taken when tires are cold!!!
Tire pressure changes between summer and winter!!
check your tire pressure once a month!!

Had the Nitrogen filled tired on my VW when I lived in brooklyn but now on the FE in queens normal air because I can't find a place. Loved the nitro because imo it really didn't change with temp and held up well over time plus free refills. Now I run my 19s in the FE about 2psi over the door label. Really need to get rid of these 19s though

If you have Costco near by that has tire shop you can use their nitrogen hose. I am a member but they never ask to see a membership card.
