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 and size guide

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.

Toyota tyre pressure frequently asked questions

Toyota Tyre Pressure - 2020 Toyota Yaris wheel

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.”*

2. Is there a general government recommendation for tyre pressure?

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

3. Where can I check the pressures for my Toyota if it is not listed below?

The tyre pressure for your Toyota will be listed in the vehicle handbook and in the driver-side door recess.

4. What rules are there concerning tyre condition?

Your tyres should be free from certain cuts and other defects such as uneven tread wear and foreign objects, such as nails.

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.

Austria1 November to 15 April
Estonia1 December to 28/29 February
Finland1 December to 28/29 February
GermanyIn adverse winter weather conditions
Latvia1 December to 28/29 February
NorwayIn adverse winter weather conditions winter tyres or chains must be used
Sweden1 December to 31 March
Mandatory winter tyre use in Europe*

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.

    1. Hi Alec
      Thanks for your post.
      You are correct and we have amended this post accordingly. You may be aware that we announced on 8 May a new grade which does have 16 inch alloys and we will add this to Blog post in due course.
      Thanks again.

  1. Hi Nick
    Thanks for your post.
    We will double check with our technical team for you however they generally only recommend the manufacturer wheel and tyre specification as per the vehicle handbook. Will let you know.

  2. Seems really daft to show pressures above 99mph in the UK. I would like to know what the correct pressures are for an Avensis Estate D4D (T27) 2010 TR with 215/55 17 94 W tyres when normal passengers and when full i.e. Loaded. The handbook and above does not help with lodged car pressures.

  3. Good morning Tom,
    The reason we include this data is because in Germany it is legal to drive at high speeds on the autobahn and it would be negligent not to include this data. Similarly, on private roads or surfaces an owner may wish to drive above 99mph and we must ensure they are accommodated wether or not we sanction their speed. If your car has Eco package, the correct pressures are (when loaded) Front 40 psi, rear, 37 psi, and if no eco package: front 35 psi, rear 34 psi. Thank you for your query and we hope this has helped you today.

    1. Thank for your prompt response. Are the pressures therefore the same for an unloaded (normal car) and when it is loaded? Or should loaded i.e. with luggage and family have even higher pressures?

      Thank you

      1. Hi Tom. No worries, we’re here to help. The pressures should only be altered if you are loading the car to its absolute limit, we would say. The pressures given were in response to the car being loaded, however if they match the unloaded pressures in your manual it would seem that our technical team advise the same for either loaded or unloaded. Hope this clarifies it some more.

    1. Hi Andrew,
      Thank you for your post. We have passed this to our technical department and they have advised that 50psi on the tyre is max load for the tyre. It is advised to always use the pressure presented in the owner’s manual which in this case is up to the maximum of 35psi. Hope this helps clarify and if you have any other questions please let us know.

  4. Can a 2015 Yaris Hybrid Sport with 16″ rims as standard spec adopt the alternative 15″ rims and taller but narrower tyres specified for other models? The aim would be to have a spare set with winter tyres on.

    1. Hi Marcus,
      Thank you for your post. We have spoken with our product department and they have not recommended changing a vehicle outside of its manufacturing specification. Hope this helps clarify and if you have any other questions please let us know.

      1. Hi, you can fit 15 inch wheels on the Yaris. If you look at the accessory options on the Toyota website for the Yaris there are a set of steel wheels specifically for winter tyres – £300 a set, without tyres.

  5. My 2012 gt86 has Michelin primacy 216/45r17 not 205/55r17 . The gt86 with 16″ wheels are 205/55r16 . PSI for all is 35 as stated in manual!

  6. When are you going to issue an update to Mirrorcast? You are stuck on a version which is only compatible with a short list of very old phones. My Samsung uses version 1.1 and currently I’m unable to use this feature in my 65 plate Aygo xcite.

    1. Hello Howard,
      Thank you for your post. There are no plans at present for an update. However, stay tuned to our blog for more information regarding our multimedia systems. Hope this helps and if you have any other questions please let us know.

      1. Hi
        I’m annoyed with this as the system is sold for use as a multimedia system when in fact it’s a basic touch screen for radio use and plug in music use you should be updating it to work with more modern phones not ones almost a decade old

  7. Above you state that the Auris Excel with 17″ wheels should have 215-45-17 tyres, but my 2014 Auris Hybrid came from the factory with 225-45-17. Enigma?

    1. Hi Gerry,
      Thank you for your post. In 2014 Auris saw a face lift which altered the size of the wheels, this is why your Auris will have slightly different sized wheels compared to that suggested in this post. Hope this helps further and if you have any other questions please let us know.
