Seems like a no brainer (check, always check) but for whatever reason I trusted the dealer to make sure the Hot Rod was up to par when I took delivery. Well after fighting with the roads and leaving it up to sensitivity to road crown etc. I decided to check the tire pressure today. All 4 were at 29.5 to 31 PSI. Well I fixed that and broguht them all up to 38PSI. WOW :eek: is all I can say to describe the handeling now as well as road crown sensitivity (not much anymore)! love this SRT more and more everyday.

According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, 51 percent of American drivers check their own tire pressure. Unfortunately, 48 percent of those surveyed consult their tire's sidewall to find the proper inflation pressure.

"The inflation pressure on the sidewall of the tire is the MAXIMUM operating pressure determined by the tire manufacturer," says BFGoodrich (www.bfgoodrichtires.com). "It is not necessarily the correct tire inflation for your vehicle. You should ALWAYS use the inflation recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. You can find this information in your vehicle owner's manual, or posted on the inside edge of the driver's door or other door, or on the inside of the glove box door."

With my Hemi the tire pressure rating was for 17 inch tires but it had 20,s. I am just saying the number on the tire is the best to go by. I am running 40 PSI in mine and have got 18,000 miles on them and still plenty left.

Those with earlier SRT-10's got a sticker from Dodge to put over the one for 17" tires. I assume they started putting the right one on from the start after that.

Sticker Location

The tire pressure sticker on the 04 Ranger I just got is on the inside of the gas filler door. So it can be just about anywhere. Start with this pressure and not the pressure listed as maximum on the tire sidewall. The reasons for this have already been posted..........Jack

I did receive a sticker to replace the one on the door, and it is 38 PSI. Be sure to check them often. They will vary. Its hard to tell by site with low profile tires.

Wow, glad I am not the only one with (had) low tires :p

The sticker on my 05 says 38PSI with the correct tire size P-BIGxBIGxBIG etc.
