Myth or Fact: The pressure listed on the tire sidewall indicates the recommended pressure?

Myth or Fact: Tire pressure does not need to be regularly checked for vehicles equipped with TPMS?

When it comes to tires, there is a lot of misinformation out there. Check out our write-up linked below where we dismiss some of the common myths surrounding tires and tire safety.

Side wall pressure statement indicated MAX permitted PSI along with MAX loading (weight) per tire.
If your towing or carrying a heavy load its a good idea to inflate tires to the MAX PSI rating.

Always lower psi back to OEM recommendation noted on 'B' pillar of vehicle, on driver side. (a sticker about the size of a deck of cards.)

TPMS only tells you when you drop to a dangerous psi level. Always check your tire psi once a month, in the garage, out of the sun, and prior to the vehicle being driven. Especially critical in the colder months in northern states, but important for all!
