Does 2 psi make a crazy difference? I know sometimes pressures are also found on the tire. I would go with the tire recommendation at that point.

Tire pressure change all the time, temp of the tire when cool parked, temp when driven for 20 min., temp when driven all day, then there’s the air temp. 2 or 3°, is subjective, go with dealer.

What I have seen on the tire has always been the max pressure. Not a good idea to use that. The same tire can have different recommended pressures on different vehicles.

I'd also say that 2 psi back or forth don't make or break your day.

I tend to inflate about 10% over the door-jam recommendation on the presumption that this results in less sidewall flexing and thus cooler running here in the South Florida heat. Am I doing something dumb? Enlighten me, o gurus.

Luddite - I do about the same thing in the Aridzona heat, and, for the same reasons. I've done this with EVERY vehicle I've ever owned (since the early 1960s) and have never found a reason to stop doing it.
