S80 tire pressures

Post by asummers » Fri Jan 02, 2009 11:21 am

I was going to check the pressure on the tires on my 2000 S80. I opened the fuel filler door to see what the factory said the pressure should be, and there is no tire pressure sticker there!
Nor, is it anywhere else on the car, and the manual does not list the pressures.

Does anyone one know what the tire pressures are on the factory sticker?

I typically take the middle of the road on our cars and fill to 35psi at room temperature. I think it's more of a "comfort" issue than anything- any PSI's between the two are fine.
