Hi, m8s,

I heard the front tires should have more psi than rear tires, but the manuel said they should all be 32 psi. So which one is correct? Also where to pump the tires? How much it might be?

Thanks.

By the door or the book.
To air the tires look for the rubber part coming out of the tire, it will have a cap.
use a tire pressure gauge to check pressure.

Thanks. I mean where can I air the tires? Does the gas station do this? Or I should drive to the garage? How much will they charge me for airing the tires normally?

most, if not all, gas stations should have an air compressor for you to use.

well, i aired all my tires 40psi. they were all bulgy from side and check pressure they were 15-22psi.
and the tire pressure gauge, is good to have, makes you air it precisely or close to it.

yeah most of them should have one(air compressor), you pay i think either 25 cents or 75 cents.

a tire shop here close to the house didn't really charge us , to air our tires but yeah, that was just us, may be different for you.

FYI - Air pressure should be checked when the tires are cold for accurate readings. What I do is to check the air pressure at home and if I need to add air, I pump it up at home before I drive the car anywhere.

An air pump like this works just fine. I've been using the one like this for my bicycle for the last 15 years. It takes me about 10 "pumps" to raise 1 PSI for a tire (205/60R16) , so it's not fast, but you get some exercise out of it too ;)

You can get these pumps for really cheap at places like Target, Wal-Mart, etc...

While you are at it, make sure to check the air pressure in the spare.

Thank you all, m8s. I tried 2 gas stations and I didn't know I should push the trigger to let the air in until the guy told me to.

I will buy an air pumper, this will no time limit.
