Default Freelander Tyre Pressure

Does anyone know the correct Tyre pressure for my freelander?
Its a 1999 XDI 2.0 ltr diesel.

The Manual says 26psi but thats for a smaller 195 tyre.
I have 215/65 R16V fitted

Default Re: Freelander Tyre Pressure

According to the Dunlop site your vehicle with that size of tyre should be 29psi (2.0bar)

Thanks Missing Link
Just had x4 new tyres fitted which was not cheap so I am going to make sure they are at the correct PSI so they last longer!

sometimes with the freelander, it takes a little experimentation to find the right pressure. don't always go by what the book says (within reason). run mine at 34 psi all round, as usually fully loaded, seems about right.

there is a test with a piece of chalk you can do to guide you on your way, but I just did mine by trial and error till it felt right.

Question Re: Freelander Tyre Pressure

Hi

good question...i've taken the back seats out of my lander, so i'm guessing i should put lower pressure in the rear tyres'...my hand book states 30psi all-round.!

Whats the chalk test?

put a chalk line across each tyre - drive it a couple of hundred yards (in the dry) see if the line has been removed from the centre or the edge of the tyre - adjust pressures accordingly.

Keep all the pressures the same, it's for the same reason you put the new tyres on the rear.

Removing trim, seats etc. will make little difference to the overall weight of the vehicle enough to justify reducing the pressure. It is more likely that you would need to raise the pressure with heavy loads.
All tyres would have an ideal footprint for the road surface but few manufacturers seem to publish what they should be.
OPs test optimises the scrubbing differences between the rolling radius of the inner and outer parts of the tyre so should produce good results.

I'm running 30psi front & 32psi rear thinking that it's better to have a small amount more on the rear tyres to help with the drivetrain. I know 2psi aint a lot but then neither is a few mm wear difference.
