I'm new, but can offer a guess -- check the armrest -- it'll often have the sticker with the recommended tire pressure. Also, check the owner's manual!

As far as the tires are concerned, I absolutely HATE Michelin MXV4s...
I had them on my car before (Maxima) and they were awful...

I'm a big fan of quiet tires...the Michelins were not.

I want the quietest tires too! I just drove the dts for the first time yesterday and was not pleased with the tire noise. What have you found to work? I just had Conti premiers and Toyo TPT's on a Park ave. and the Toyo's are better all around than the conti's but perform a little worse in wet. ride a ton better though. about same noise, with an edge to the toyo's? I see the toyos' are avail. in my size? any suggestions.

found the sticker, it was on the right rear passenger door, 30 all around, however i've found that 36 front and 30 rear works wonders for the handling without loss of ride. tried 40 front but got a warning message that they are over pressured, as i have the tire pressure sensor thing.

I have an 03 DTS and run 35 F & R in my Michelin MXVs. There is a slight difference in harshness between the 30 recommended and 35. I haven't found them exceptionally noisey.

check the major websites out there for "quiet" ratings...
I used to have Toyo TPTs on my car, and I enjoyed them.
HOWEVER, the QUIETEST tire I've had (and still run) are from FALKEN...

Not sure on the model exactly, plus they are a Summer-only tire.

anyway, the moral of the story of check the major tire websites for ratings on tire noise.

good luck!

BTW the sticker from GM is on the LR door, not LF door.

Most tires are around 30-35 PSI.
Tires I recommend to anyone are the Pirelli P3000 Centurato M+S if you need and all season tire and deal with snow. The P400 were great tires too but not in snow.

Michelins are great tires I'd recommend the Harmony or Hydroedge, heard good things about those and many like the X Radial. Thats all second hand though as I've never used them myself, I had the Symetrys and they wore terrible and were no where near as good as the P3000's.
