hey guys,

i just bought new set of invo tires. They are amazing on high speed and very quiet.

I put too much air on my old tires and they wear out so fast in the middle.

so, what is the recommended tire pressure? my tires are R18/245/45

i also noitced my coolant temprature is a little high. Yesterday, I was waiting my friend, It reached 98 when AC is on and even it sometimes reaches 100. Is it normal?

Thanks!

Firstly, in Australia it is tyres with a Y.
Secondly, tyre pressure recommended levels are on your sidewall of the tyres.
Temp wise, yep, those temps are normal.

my tires' sidewall rating is 51 psi O_O

I put 38 psi in my old tires and they wear out so fast in the middle. I didn't find anything about tire pressure in owner's manual or on the driver's side doorjamb. Is there a website or something like that help me out?

Well I run 36 to 38psi my tyres are the same as yours 245/45/18

G'day
maybe the servo you use has a dodgy air pressure gauge

Tyres with a Y mate, you are on an Aussie forum after all.... as the saying goes, do as the locals do......

And also we dont call them shrimps, we call them prawns

It is in the owners manual. Look again bud. Also try the fuel filler door. Ignore the tyre pressure on the sidewall. That is only the Max that tyre can handle. Not what is recommended for the vehicle.
