    to be sure look on your tire's sidewall to get the correct psi...ford broncos had lots of problems because they recomended a lower pressure than what the tire actually needed so they would get hot, blow out and caused accidents.

    I ride at the factory recommended 30psi with the 275s. a normal car tire pressure is 30 to 32 psi.

    My door panel says 30psi as well. My owners manual goes on to say that for speeds over 100mph to use the max psi on the side wall of the tire or 38psi which every is lower. I run 36psi in my tires. We have a pretty tall ceiling on our interstate.

    the pressure on the sidewall may not be the correct pressure for the vehicle. the tire can fit any vehicle. if the tire is the same size as what's on the door placard, along with correct speed rating and ability to go to that pressure, you use that pressure.

    the whole ford explorer issue is a totally different matter. the pressure was correct for the vehicle. the main problem is when people just get in their vehicle and drive it until the wheels fall off. they never check tire pressure and all the basics. then they want to blame the manufacturers for their lack of maintenance. the explorer is a bit unique in the fact it seemed to be the right rear always letting go. that would tend to lead into the vehicle being at fault and not the tire.
