Default 15" tire pressure?

I just installed a set of 15" steelies with snow tires on my GT Turbo. Would like to know what the manufacturer's reccomended pressure is for the 195/65-15 tires for those of you with factory 15" wheels.

Thanks

Your recommeded tire pressure should be on a label on the drivers door. Also check your owners manual for the topic 'Snow Tires', I believe it says to adjust your tires 4 psi higher when driving on snow. There's also information for the use of tire chains.

Thanks, but the reason i asked is because the label on mine is for the 17" GT tires (38 psi), which I'm sure is too high for the 15" snows I just put on.

34 lbs is the normal pressure for the 16" tire, running 16" tires in the snow it would be 38 lbs, not sure if the 15" would be the same, sorry I couldn't help.

My 02 Classic came with 15s, the label recommends 34 libs.

Hi!

My Chrysler-dealer recommends 40 lbs on the 16'' - so my PT Cruiser runs more more economical (gaz-prices in Germany are intolerable).

@IRPT: I know this label on the drivers door, but I take a little bit more.
