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 , I have just got a new shape Toyota Aygo. I am finding it very difficult to attach my foot pump to the valve due to the very tight fitting. Is there a recommended foot pump that has to be used please?

    1. Hi Roger. Thanks for getting in touch, and we apologise for the delayed response. We do not sell an official foot pump, however if you continue to have issues we advise a visit to your local dealer to inspect the problem. Thank you, and we hope this helps.

  2. I’ve had a RAV4 hybrid for 4 weeks and found the ride firm and very hard, i.e. I can feel everything on the road surface. But, I’ve just noticed that the handbook and the label on the driver’s door piller says the inflation pressure should be 35psi but this web page says the RAV4 should be 32psi.

    I’ve reduced the pressure to 32psi and that is better, but can I go lower?

    Also, I’ve noticed a 2psi variation between air pumps, are you adding an allowance in your recommendations for air pump variation?

    1. Hi William,
      Thanks for your post. We would advise following the specific tyre pressure guidelines that are listed in the owner’s manual and in the door/glove box. Hope this helps and if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us. Many thanks.

      1. The owner’s manual for the 2018 RAV4 Hybrid also lists 225/60R18 100H as a possible tyre size (page 653 – type C). Can you confirm if I can use that to replace the OEM 235/55R18 size? My RAV4 is in Excel trim so comes with 18 inch wheels.

        Thanks,
        Will

      2. Hi Will,

        Thanks for getting in touch. Could you please provide us with your VIN/Registration and we can check this with our Technical Team for you.

        Thanks.

  3. OMG, how can you justify instructing what tyre pressures should be.

    example 33-35 psi but for speeds upto 99mph the pressure should be raised. DERR not sure what country your blogger lives in but here in Britain its 70mph., Don’t leave yourselves open for a law suit. You will get some idiot that will will your information on board and will be driving around at 90mph. please make amendments to your tyre info.

  4. Hi there,
    Thanks for your post. All information mentioned in this blog post is factual and we are not suggesting/recommending/advising that people should be speeding on public roads. Many thanks.

  5. Hi
    I have a landcruiser V8 with 20″ alloys which I hate and would like to change. O have a couple of 80 series and run them on bf Goodrich ATs, I would like to fit 17″ with 285/70 /17 as I can’t source anything to fit anywhere in Eire or UK. I can get these in Germany on original Toyota rims but I’m unsure if they will fit as maybe slightly oversized. Has anyone any ideas or experience in proper sizing.20″ are ridi ulous as this is a 4/4 vehicle but no all terrains come to fit 20″ to my knowledge.

  6. Hi David,
    Thanks for your query. We would have to advise speaking to your dealer regarding this query, they will be able to give you the best advice on this matter. If you need help sourcing your local dealer please let us know and we will be happy to help! Many thanks.

  7. A dealer will tell me I can’t fit 17″ 18″ to landcruiser that has been fitted with 20″ from factory. I know this to be incorrect. David.

  8. Hi David,
    Thanks for getting back to us. Unfortunately, we’d have to advise you take the advice given by your local dealer. Your local dealer has years of expert advice under their belt. Many thanks!

    1. What an unbelievably naive reply, firstly, how do you know they have years of experience under their belt? Clearly you don’t know which would be more appreciated than ask your dealer.
      David.

      1. Hi David,
        Thanks for your post. We have spoken with our technical team here at Toyota UK and due to the 17/18″ alloys not being Toyota approved, we cannot advise fitting them to your vehicle. We are not saying that these will not fit and cannot be fitted but due to them not being tested by Toyota we would advise against it. The option to source them elsewhere is available but done at your own, personal, risk. Hope this helps!
