    Definitely not on a label when you open drivers door or in fuel flap?

    Since the title is generic, I though I might ask as well:

    205/55/16's - I've got 32 Front and 35 Rear. Only 2 people. Is this ok?

    Ok so I you follow NHN's rough guide in the linked thread - start with what your label says and add 2psi for every inch above 16"
