Has anyone experimented with raising the tire pressure up 35psi to see if the fuel mileage increases? Any abnormal tire wear or a rougher ride?
Well, like I said, the 36/34 combo has been common on the Aura since it's been out, and even a few dealers recommended it. It's not 30, no, but in comparison your tires don't look flat either or mush around.Careful raising it up to far, the TPMS sensors in the wheels will not like it, and you will start to loose traction as the PSI goes up.
Just curious--Why would the "TPMS sensors...not like it"? Don't they just report the pressure? I mean, if they fail to operate correctly at "abnormal" pressures, what good are they?Careful raising it up to far, the TPMS sensors in the wheels will not like it, and you will start to loose traction as the PSI goes up.
Ah, that makes sense. Any out of range pressure--too high or too low--generates a warning light and DIC message.they look for psi with in a certain range, to high psi can set them off too
I've had customers come in with 60psi in their tires and the tpms light on
I have decided to go by what my DIC displays. My gauge reads 1 PSI lower than the DIC. If I want 32 to read on the DIC I read 31 on the tire gauge.brought them up to 30 cold today. Although from my gauge I set them at 31 but they came up 30 on the DIC so I left them that way.
No, it is what it is. No calibration to a gauge, and the sensors themselves are already pretty dead on and all the time so.I wonder if there is anyway to calibrate the TPMS to your air pressure gauge....Seems kind of silly that actual tire pressure gauge readings differ from the TPMS.
