What pressure in PSI do you put in this tyre?
I have a 14" Space saver and have been told by the firm who sold it to put 60 PSI in the tyre to balance out with the other 17" tyres on the car.
I would have thought 60 is rather high in a 14" when i only have 34/32 in my 17" tyres but i guess it must be correct.
I'm sure you know, but note that those space savers usually have a speed limit of 50 or 55mph, and normally come with a big warning sticker on them saying that (which also would've shown tyre pressure)
When i got the tyre i put it in the boot and have not looked at it since.
Its a pain that the wheel has to be upside down in the boot, as it has to be removed each time you want to check the pressure. It would be easier to check the pressure if the wheel could stay in the boot the other way round so the valve was on show without the need to remove the wheel, but of course the wheel would then bounce around as it would not be secured with the securing bolt.
I do check all the tyres on the car every month and i will check the spare this week.
Yes i know the limit is 50MPH, but i am lucky to get to 30MPH in the traffic these days.
I keep my automatic compressor in the car, under a seat. It can do >60psi if needed. I hardly check the pressure of the spare (full size on mine, so 30psi-ish) as it can be topped up - on the car - in seconds, if needs be. Being upside down, and carrying the toolset is not an issue in this case!
