The manual statements 5 psi for front and rear, BUT the tire itself states no more than 36 psi....what the heck?
This is an important point . It is often misunderstood, confusing and argued over.

Both our members gave you good advice. The same goes for cars , trucks and SUVs. The tire may have a maximum pressure rating which is much higher than the vehicles manual, or the information on the drivers door, or drivers door frame calls for. Differences in a tires designed load range can cause this disparity.

Take for example a Jeep Liberty with 225/75/16 tires. That same size can be found on a box truck in a load range E.

Take a look at this chart and see exactly how confusing things can get when a “tire professional” allows the incorrect tires to be installed on a vehicle and a customer is left to his own devices following the sidewall instead of the vehicles recommendations .

Always look at both, the maximum inflation on the tire and the vehicles recommendation. Then follow the vehicles recommendation as long as it isn’t HIGHER than the tires recommendation.
