Default Tire Pressure for Goodyear 225/70/15


I'm running Goodyear GT2 225/70/15 tires on my '69 350 vette. What is
the correct psi for that tire?

Thanks,
Charles

The max tire pressure is ALWAYS indicated on the sidewall of the tire.

You are right. And I see 44 psi for the maximum. But I don't know if
that is really the "correct" tire pressure for my car, although it could
be. And I wanted to know what people on this forum felt was the correct
pressure for that tire on my car.

Does anybody have any opinions?

Thanks,
Charles

I'd think 44 psi would be a nightmare for both ride and tire life. And of
course you wouldn't want to inflate them to 44 psi cold anyway. Goodyear's
website says to use whatever the car manufacturer recommends. Look in the
owner's manual for your '69 and go with that.

The Max tire pressure is just that, the Max. If you run it it will ride like
a rock. Your owners manual should tell you and their should be a label on
the drivers side door near the latching section of the door, sometimes its
repeated in the engine decals on the that are usually on the drivers side.
Most people I know with a 69 run 32 PSI.

I believe you probably had 28 cold and 32 hot. This is a pretty common
figure for Chevy cars back then.

Many like to run about 35.

A lot depends on two factors - ride comfort and wear.

If the ride is too soft, ad air. Too hard, decrease air.

At the same time, if wear is greater in the center, decrease air. Greater
on the edges, increase air. Greater on one edge than the other, get an
alignment.

Well, my manual calls for 24 psi. But the manual assumes 4 ply tires,
and not the radials I now use. Twenty four psi, in my opinion, doesn't
sound right.

Tedd,

Thirty-two psi sounds like a good choice. I contacted a GoodYear store,
and they told me that 37 psi was a good pressure to use. I contacted a
Corvette shop and they told me 32 psi. So, maybe 32 to 37 psi is a good
range for good ride, good handling, even tire ware, maximum tire life,
and good gas mileage for 225/70/15 tires on a '69 vette.
