Default 2002 avalon tire question.

Owner's manual recommends a tire pressure. When I replaced wit Michelins,
tire shop said should be 35 to 40 pounds.
Which is correct shop or manual?
Thank you,
Seamus J. Wilson

what is the model of michelins did you get?

I would still go by the doorjab/manual as a MINIMUM and if you carry more
load, set it to 32 psi.

35 psi to 40 psi will have the centre of the tire wear out and the car ride
will be hard and your gonna be all over the road at interstate speeds

I have a 2001 Avalon with Michelin MXV4 plus. I go with 35 psi. It firms
up the Avalon ride a bit and in my experience many Toyotas tend to wear tire
edges so a bit of extra pressure will hopefully lead to more even wear.
