Shameful Question

I'm almost embarassed to ask this, but not-being a huge car guy... i think it's acceptable. Anyway, what should my tire pressure gauge read when I check my tires? The question applies to my '89 camry....

Thanks alot for your help, this site has been good to me...

If you can't find a sticker on the door or door post and/or owners manual. Keep pressure at 32 PSI till you can find out the correct pressure. That should be safe.

Keep in mind your tires also say your Max PSI you can use...so dont ever go over that...if it says 46 for instance...you should be around 36...but if that's too hard for you...go down to 32...play around and see what you like/is comfortable to you

About 60% of accidents on the road occur due to improper pressure in the tires...either too much or too little...remember...your 4 tires are the only thing in contact (hopefully) w/the road...keeping them at the correct pressure is KEY.

They should be within 28 and 32 psi. Call up a Toyota dealer and find out.
