but his mechanic says he doesn't have the right equipment because of the tire pressure monitor system. Is this true since I saw a diagram that shows that there is an easy
disconnect to the tire pressure monitor just for this purpose. Thanks.
Any ideas are appreciated!
Bought bridgestone dueller for the crd we used to own and agree with winter2 that there is loss of feel with bridgestone(maybe that is what is reported when people complained about the malibu vague electric steering).
Just replaced kumho's on the malibu with toyo spectrum (base tire and cheaper but with a 5ply tread and 2ply sidewall) and like them (is toyo getting better) track like the kumho but a little vague like a bridgestone - but very happy as the tires are still new.
Hummer discussions tend to deal with off road bfg's, toyo, and the boutique brands.
Anybody using the kumho's for highway use with some off-road.
Always wondered (like others asked elsewhere) why the LT's are "C" load range and replacement tires are "D" load range. Old favorites links go nowhere now but an old toyo pdf still lives on the hard drive. "C" is the highest load range with change ability to P-metric. Was the H3 designed for the highway and given "C"'s to accommodate the H image.
Still thinking of replacement for the duellers [Blue Beauty is a grocery getter for now - kumho all terrain tire and toyo. (Please no buy usa only-look where your tire was really made and where were you when the rust belt tooling was shipped overseas as well as mid west shoe factories and garments industry)]Toyo a consideration since had them as oe on a base Previa, happy with spectrums on the malibu, and hall racing using toyo.
Don't have the Industry Handbook, note that the P-metric and LT-metric H3 placard both show 35psi. H3 is at 38 now and was 40-42. What tire pressure when the replacements are "D" load range or why not drop down to a passenger tire for ride and mileage while grocery getting.
Found new link to load range, pressures, and etc.
Sounds right to me. Don't confuse the maximum recommended pressure on the sidewall with the operating pressure recommended for a particular vehicle application.
The max pressure is at max load, which you're unlikely to impose on it with your H3.
Also, there's no requirement to change pressures with speed, and it would make travelling any distance on varied roads quite a chore if there was.
However, do remember that your tire pressures will increase as your speed increases, due to the heat generated by the friction betwixt road and tire.
On a vehicle with a constant readout of the tire pressures you can see this happening quite clearly.
