Toyota tyre pressure and size guide

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.”*

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.

    Thank YOU!!

    1. Hi Sarath,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us.
      The recommended tyre pressure for your Prius Plus depends on the size of tyres it has fitted.
      Our records show that your vehicle was fitted in the factory with 205/60 R16 tyres.
      If the fitted tyres are still 205/60 R16 tyres, then the recommended pressure is 2.5 bar or 36 PSI, but if they are 215/50 R17 tyres, then the recommended pressure is 2.3 bar or 33 PSI.
      Thanks.

      1. Hi Sarah,
        Thanks for your reply.
        Yes, as the same tyre size is on the front and the rear, the recommended pressure is the same.
        Thanks.

  5. Hi! Quick question… for. Yaris R16, the recommended pressure is 32/29; I find tires lose pressure (2psi) every week. I was considering to use 35/30 instead. What could be the reason for such lose of pressure? Thanks

    1. Hi Drigaud,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us.
      Tyres can lose pressure because of a puncture or because of valve stem issues.
      We recommend contacting a Toyota centre if you think there is an issue with the tyres as they are best placed to assess your vehicle and make any necessary recommendations.
      Thanks.
