Default Tyre Pressures

What pressure do you have your tyres for a 2.0HDI SW??
I have always done mine to 2.4 bar (35psi) and they keep to this, yet its just been in Peugeot and they have said my tyres were underinflated by 0.6bar (9psi) which I find extremely hard to believe... either my gauge I use for pressures is wrong, or they should be higher than 2.4bar.

Thoughts guys??

Sounds like something is wrong! My big heavy Volvo runs 32-34psi!

Mine also has the 17" alloys with 215/55/17 94W tyres, so all as per standard spec.

I haven't looked in the door - its still with Peugeot tonight, but I know there is something on the drivers door panel with this on, just can't remember what it is I wanted to go armed with what pressure it should be and question why they said it was 0.6bar low and what pressure they were using.

As I see it, there is 3 possibilities:
  • my pressure gauge is reading high
  • their pressure gauge is reading low
  • wrong pressures being used

Either way, be nice to get to the bottom of which one of the three is wrong

Well I don't know where I got the 2.4bar from but they are all defnitely more now - bit too much at the moment as they have put them all to 2.8bar ish, but I'll correct the front once cooled down.

mines nearside/passenger side on the front pillar just under the check-strap, stupid place to put it cos you've gotta open the passenger wide to try and see it
