Hi
I’m a lucky owner of Hyundai Sonata CRDi from 2007.
I bought new tires 215/65 - R16 Pirelli Scorpion STR, but I’m in doubt what should tire pressure be on this one?
Can anyone tell me what should normally tire pressure be with these tires, and what should it be with max load?
Kind regards
Mik

Can you post what the plackard on the inside of the drivers side door says for tire pressure. We show your vehicle came with 215/60R-16 Michelin MXV4 tires that were 94V rated. Your new tire has a load/speed rating of 98V. We can cook up the corresponding PSI based off the recommendation from the manufacturer's pressure on the OE tire.

Thank you for the additional information.

For your 215/65-16 (98 load index) STR tires, the minimum recommended pressure (cold) you can run for normal load (following the 95 load index) is 30 psi. The minimum recommended pressure (cold) you can run for maximum load (again following the 95 load index) is 31 psi.
