    What PSI should i run for a long trip?

    I'm getting ready to take a 1500 mile round trip this weekend in the SRX. I have the 18" wheels and running 36 PSI. What do you think I should run the PSI at for this trip?

    Re: What PSI should i run for a long trip?

    I typically run a few PSI above the rating on the door jamb sticker (for spirited driving ) Except in the winter with cold weather I'll run the prescribed rating to prevent excessive tire wear on a softer winter tread compound. For my 20" wheels I'll do approx. 34psi front 36psi rear.


    You probably won't notice a difference in mileage or ride quality with a few PSI +/- If you grossly under fill, you'll suffer poor mileage and get tire wear at the edge where the sidewall meets the tread. If you inflate too much, you'll have a stiff ride, compromise handling characteristics, and get tread wear in the middle of the tire.
