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. I have a low tire pressure warning. I’m inflating the tires and having them set 33 psi, however this is occurring weekly now. Had my car serviced last week and they said they see nothing wrong with it. Is this normal, since it’s becoming a nuisance doing it so often.

  2. Hello !
    i do have a website where i want to put search by car which i need all model tire sizes from 2000 to 2020
    but i could not find them here , how can i get them .

    1. Hi Mousa,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us.
      You can access owner manuals for UK spec cars online by entering the VIN here: https://fal.cn/3aAX0
      If it’s regarding a car which is not produced for the UK market, we’d recommend contacting the Toyota distributor in your region.
      Thanks.

  4. Hi, what tyre load rating should I have on my 2015 Verso 1.6 d4d (205/60/R16)? It is usually used by my wife, alone, commuting to work on motorways, but several times a year it is loaded to the gunnels with 2 adults, 3 growing children, a boot full of luggage and a roof box. Sometimes a towbar mounted cycle rack too. I check and inflate the tyres to the higher pressures prior to family trips, ought I to revert to ordinary pressures on our return? Thanks!

    1. Hi Cai,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us.
      Yes, those are the correct tyres to have on your Verso.
      You are also correct to inflate the tyres before carrying extra weight.
      These do not have to be deflated afterwards, but there is the possibility that they may wear unevenly if this is not done.
      Thanks.

  5. Hi, my Toyota LandCruiser 2004 Series 100 (manual gear) currently has 275/70 R16 Tyres. I want to replace the wheels to size 17 and the Tyres to KO2 BFG 275/65 R17, What precautions or modifications are needed before I change the wheels and Tyres. Thanks

    1. Hi there,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      We do not recommend changing the tyres away from the manufacturer’s specification, and therefore we cannot advise any further on such modifications.
      Thanks.

  6. Hi

    Can you tell me what size wheels and tyres should be on the Toyota PROACE van, reg SD17BNF please? The previous owner replaced the original wheels and fitted 17” alloys. Just wanted to check if this is ok or not?

    Thanks

    Marc.

    1. Hi Marc,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      The MY16 Toyota Proace Comfort Van came with 16” steel wheels as standard. However, there was the option available to add 17” alloy wheels as an extra.
      Dependent upon this wheel size, the tyre size is either 215/60R17C or 215/65R16C.
      Thanks.

  7. Is there a specific reason why we shouldn’t change or tires? I was thinking doing the same but after reading your comment I will research a bit more

  8. Hi Jason,
    Thanks for your comment.
    We are not saying you shouldn’t change them – we are just saying we cannot officially recommend it, because we haven’t tested it.
    Thanks.

  9. Is it good to change my tyre from 225 r15 45 max pressure to 215 r 15 38 max pressure and maxloading 880 kg for hilux double cab

    1. Hi Tika,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      We can only advise on UK specification vehicles, so we would suggest contacting the Toyota distributor in your region for further help with your query.
      Thanks.

    2. Hi, my tyre pressure is low for my 2017 chr, warning sign popped today on my dashboard. I dont know how to put air on tyres. I need help with this, just purchased the car in June at the edgware branch nw9

      1. Hi Eunice,
        Thanks for getting in touch with us.
        The first step would be to remove the valve cap from the tyre that you wish to inflate. Make sure to keep these in a safe place.
        You should then connect the air hose or inflation method you wish to use to the valve on the tyre, ensuring that the correct PSI pressure is set.
        If using a machine, a beep should issue when the tyre has reached the desired pressure.
        You should then remove the hose and screw the valve cap back onto the tyre valve.
        Thanks.

    1. Hi Shaukat,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Shift position B should be used for applying engine braking or strong braking, like when approaching traffic or when going down steep hills.
      Use D for regular driving, which is more efficient.
      Thanks.
