Default How do I know what the tire pressure is for my 2007 Honda Civic?

My car was acting a little funny so I checked my tires and they seemed low. I have a tire pressure reader thing and when I put it into the tire it read "7.5" I have no idea what that means. If someone could explain it and tell me how much air I should put into the tires I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

try 30. that seems to be the normality for passenger cars. the number indicated the amount of psi (pounds per square inch) that the air is exerting on the inside wall of the tire. proper inflation is absolutely critical for gas mileage and proper wear, as well as your safety. a reading of 7.5 means the tire is severaly low. should be about flat at that level. have it checked at a shop

The correct tire pressure is on a tag,either inside the glove box or front door frame.The 7.5 is on as scale not used widely in the US twist the Gage and find a scale from in PSI (pounds /square inch) from 0-50 yours will be near 25-30.Congrats on diagnosing low tire pressure, 30% of American tires are under-inflated.

usually around 30-35. check the driver door jamb there is a sticker there and usually the tire will say ( RECCOMMENDED LOAD CAPACTIY ..... MAX PRESSURE (cold) 35 PSI / ...KG) on the side keep looking its usually small font just give it 30 then take it to a shop if your still not sure.

The tire pressure is also listed on the last page of the owners manual in the third column.
