Hello dennistan80,

Welcome to our community :-)

I am not near my car at the moment, so I cannot verify, but there should be a sticker on the B pillar or somewhere along the driver's door portal (visible when your door is open) which would indicate the recommended tire pressures for light loads and heavy loads.

As an example (although my tire size is different) my light loading is 230 kPa (my units may be wrong because I'm not at the car right now)

:-)

Thanks. Cause when first collect car, i checked the tire pressure when cold and different figures around all 4 tires at 240kpa, 250kpa, 260kpa and 270kpa then i adjust to 240kpa but find it too soft. Think will try 250KPA since the load chart recommend pressure is 230kpa for light load and 270kpa for full load.

hello dennistan80 :-)

is yours an Exclusive or a Dynamique?

because if you have hydractive, you can press the 'sport' button.

this will firm up the ride when the situation warrants it :-)
