Toyota Recommended Tire Pressure Guide

Mechanic with Tires

Proper tire inflation is essential for your safety on Freehold roads. It also ensures your vehicle is performing at its best. So, what is the Toyota recommended tire pressure? That depends on the model you own. Learn more about the Toyota recommended PSI for some of our most popular models and what to do if your Toyota TPMS light is on with the team at Galaxy Toyota below.

Toyota TPMS Light Meaning

If your Toyota TPMS light is on, you may be wondering what this means. TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. This convenient system comes standard with many of the newer models and uses tire pressure sensors to monitor your tires’ air pressure. It will notify you with the Toyota TPMS light on your dashboard if it determines one or more of your vehicle’s tires aren’t at the Toyota recommended tire pressure.

Toyota Recommended Tire Pressure

When it comes to having the right tire pressure in your Toyota, this can vary slightly depending on the model. Here is the Toyota recommended PSI (pounds per square inch) for some of our most popular models:

  • Toyota Tacoma: 30 psi front / 30 psi rear
  • Toyota Highlander: 36 psi front / 36 psi rear
  • Toyota Venza: 35 psi front / 35 psi rear
  • Toyota Avalon: 32 psi front / 32 psi rear
  • Toyota Tundra: 30 psi front / 33 psi rear

Note: Consult your owner’s manual or the sticker inside your driver’s side door for exact figures.

How to Add Air to Your Tires

If your Toyota TPMS light is on and you’re wondering how to add air to your tires, you’ll be pleased to know the process is quite straightforward:

  • Pull up to the air dispenser at the gas station.
  • Ensure you can reach all four tires with the air hose.
  • Remove the cap from the tire valve on the first tire.
  • Using your tire gauge, check the air pressure in the tire.
  • Adjust the tire pressure as needed.
  • Repeat this process for the other three tires.

Note: Your tire pressure can increase due to your tires heating and expanding while driving. That said, air hose gauges at your local Toms River gas station may not be 100% accurate. Avoid overinflating your tires by adding short bursts of air, and only put as much air in as what was lost prior to visiting the air dispenser.

Don’t worry if you add too much air to your tires. Using the back of the air nozzle, press the pin on the tire valve or use the small knob on the back of the rounded end of the tire gauge to release some of the air. It may take a couple of times to get it right, so patience is key.
