Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Newbie question about tire pressure

Sorry for a question that everyone knows the answer except me.
'22 Runabout has 4 Universal tires, 30 x 3-1/2.
I measured the pressures at each tire at 32, 49, 45 and 36.
The Ford reprint service manual states 27 psi.
Please tell me the correct tire pressure.

It is my first T and I'll most likely post additional questions and hoping that I am not bothersome to anyone.

Your 30 x 3.5 clincher tires need 55-60 PSI so they will not slide on the rims causing a rim cut and/or a sliced valve stem

No bother, ask as many questions as you will.

Minimum of 55 psi. for 30" clincher tires

Ford requirement.

60psi to 65psi if tires and tubes are new or very good.



The 27 psi. is only for 21" balloon tires.

what size tire?

As Bob said...MUCH more pressure required in yours.

You read the reprint correctly (probably), BUT the specs were later changed.
