I'm assuming you know that the term "cold" doesn't refer to cold weather, rather just standing tire pressure, before extended driving. No offence intended, just didn't want people to get confused!Subaru's recommended cold tire pressures for the '09 Forester are:
225/55R17: 32F / 30R
215/65R16: 30F / 29R
Yeah, 22 is my preferred offroad pressure, unless I'm dealing with snow (or sand I guess, but we don't really have any here). Then I have dropped it down to as low as 12.I keep mine at around 36f/34r usually, up to about 38 for a stiffer tire, offroad i'll drop them to about 25.
The pressures listed on the B-pillar placard are Subaru's recommendations for the specific tires and conditions listed on the placard. Changing tires and/or conditions may require different pressures.I have a question: Is the pressures listed in the drivers door jam recommended for the stock tires or for all tires you put on the car?
