Default What is the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure for a 1990 Acura Integra LS?

I know this can be found on the sticker inside the drivers side door frame, but I don't own an Acura Integra -- I'm trying to buy some custom valve stem caps with built-in pressure guages as a gift for someone and I need to know the manufacturer's tire pressure specs.I'm looking for the values on the sticker on the inside of the driver's side door frame. I will only accept an answer from someone with a 1990 Acura Integra. If you do not have these exact values, please do not answer the question.

just look at the side wall of the tire and it should say "MAX PSI XX".

Don't do what the tire says, that is a max pressure, when you fill a tire to max pressure your putting a lot of stress in the centre of the tread, you'll wear the centre of the tire out and the sides will be good. I do believe honda used about 28 or 29PSI in the tires, but anywhere from 26-32 should be good for a car that. It doesn't have to be exact, becasue when the tire moves it generates heat and will cause the tire pressure to raise, and when its cold the pressure will be lower. so anything between 26PSI - 32PSI will be good.

I go 30-32 psi on a tire of that size, anything between 26 and 36 psi will be fine.

A rule of thumb for most cars and trucks is 32 psi for most tires that are cold. I have have encountered an SUV that had commercial truck tires on it that needed a little bit more than that, about 36 to 40 psi. I own a 1998 GS-R with custom wheels and tires and I always used 32 psi. The treadwear on those tires was perfect, not uneven on the sides or the middle.
