Toyota tyre pressure and size guide

Toyota wheels and tyres

This is our guide to Toyota tyre pressure and tyre advice. When it comes to car maintenance, many of us think only about oil changes and brake pads. However, tyres also deserve our attention, since they’re the only part of our vehicles that actually touch the road surface.

In this article we provide information concerning tyre law in the UK and on the continent (where motorway speeds can be higher) and inform you of the tyre sizes and preferred pressure levels for all models in the current Toyota passenger vehicle range.

Toyota tyre pressure FAQs

1. What is the required tyre tread depth in the UK?

The UK government states that cars, light vans and light trailers must have a minimum tread depth of 1.6mm and “there must be tread across the middle three-quarters and around the entire tyre.”*

No, tyre pressure recommendations vary from car to car. Car manufacturers set the values for inflation levels.

5. Are there any tyre-related laws that I should be aware of when driving on the continent?

Yes, but they are mainly concerned with the fitment of winter tyres. The European countries listed below legally enforce the use of winter tyres between the stated dates*. Minimum tread depths may also change in winter or from country to country, so it’s best to check local laws before you depart.

6. Why do pressure levels vary depending on wheel size?

Pressures vary because larger diameter wheels use lower-profile tyres. Low profile tyres have less rolling resistance and drag than higher-walled tyres, so inflating them to the same level as high-profile rubber can give a harsh ride and increase road noise.

The tyre sizes and recommended general inflation pressures for all current models in the Toyota passenger vehicle range can be found in the table below. Inflation pressures for older models can usually be found either on one of the car’s B-pillars, on the inside of the glove box lid, or within the owner’s manual.

  1. Hello,

    I have recently bought Yaris hybrid 2020 – the tyre size is 205/45/R17. Recommended tyre pressure is 2.2/2.0. Warning light turned on when the pressure was 2.0/1.8 and I inflated all the tyres to 2.2/2.0. Then it turned on again. I took the car to Toyota service and they said the proper pressure was 2.5 and they actually inflated the tyres to 2.5. The warning light turned off. Which is correct – the guideline or my Toyota dealer nearby? Is it safe to drive at 2.5 when the guidance is 2.2? I would appreciate your help.

    1. Hi Rye884,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      The recommended pressure for your vehicle will be displayed in the driver’s side door recess.
      It is not recommended to drive on overinflated tyres.
      Thanks.

  2. I have the same problem re tyre inflation, I have a Toyota yaris Hybrid 2014
    I have been going by the hand book front 2.2 rear 2.0 but the front tyres always look under inflated
    I have read the comment that you sent to the previous enquirer but they just dont look right .
    I have moved them up to 2.3 but still look under inflated and the tyre seems to be be marking up as if its under inflated your comments would be welcome,
    Thank You

    1. Hi John,
      Thanks for your comment.
      The recommended tyre pressure for your vehicle will be the one in your handbook.
      It is not recommended to drive on overinflated tyres.
      If you think there is something wrong with your tyres, your nearest Toyota Centre will be able to look into this for you.
      Thanks.
