Tire air pressure

Our new 2016 SE came with 30 Psi air pressure in all tires
I read Door sticker shows 35Psi
I increase pressure to 35 psi
Now the ride is harsh should i dial back to 30psi?
The car will be on highway 55/75 Mph 50 miles a day 5 days per week

Pump them up to 38psi. That "harsh" ride is improved handling and gas mileage. You want a plush ride you bought the wrong car.

When I want a soft ride I just drive my XJS 2+2 Jaguar
We just tired of the 2012 Fusion and want something different
For $8000 and our old Fusion deal made
I can also use my 16 F 150 its ride okay.
I think I'll try 32psi

The focus is not a harsh ride but it's not no floating couch either.

Put the PSI to whatever you want, but why make a thread about it to ask us if you know what your going.
What size tires/wheels do you have? Might want to go to 16s with a nice big side wall if have bigger wheels.





Few months later OP posts a thread on improper tire wear and blames tire brand or wonders why.

We are going to all say the same, stick to the door jam listing.

215/55/16 Contiprocontact
Wife drove car to Quantico and back 54 miles
Said it rode okay
I'll leave tires at 35 psi mixed air/nitrogen
Thanks everyone for your input

One thing I did note was Brake dust on the wheels
Guess I'll have to install some slotted rotors and Good pads soon
Car only has 150 miles on clock
