Ive got the stock Dunlop tyres and I run them on 35 PSI.

Ive spoken to my local tyre place and thats what they reccomend. From memory Toyota reccomends 28 PSI which I think seems a bit low.

36. Although remember you can vary your pressure according to the season and conditions.

Summer: Bump up to 38 - Save Fuel.
Winter: Reduce to 34 - Give you a bit more tread on the road when wet.

Try different presures and see what works best. But I really wouldn't go below 34.

But the label says 23 psi for normal driving? I've got a 2005 Corolla with original tyres. Please advise. Thanks very much.

23 PSI :blink: :o
I think Toyota were drunk when they got that number. Try 34 PSI and see how it feels, then adjust accordingly. If you see your tyres are wearing in the middle, drop the pressure. And if they are wearing on the shoulders raise the pressure.

sorry my mistake. opps... on the label it should be 220xxx (different unit) which is equivalent to 32psi, and it has made significant difference on fuel consumption. thinking if I should put it up to 33psi.

You have to be carefull when altering tyre pressures because if to low the tyre will wear unevenly on the outsides and when inflated to much they will wear only on the middle section of the tread, a base reccomendation is 32psi

I use 36 front 34 back.

that's the cold setting I had at the track... was very stable and pretty grippy for street tyres.

36 all round, but I found that I was getting some lift off oversteer at the track so I lowered the rear a couple of PSI and it was perfect :)
