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.”*

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.

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. I’ve got an 07 Toyota Alphard 3ltr automatic with the back turned into a mini camper. Tyres are 215/60/R16. What tyre pressure should I be setting?

    1. Hi Mike,

      That is not a vehicle we ever sold in the UK, so we don’t have any technical data on it. It has also been modified, making it even more difficult to recommend. Generally, if the vehicle is heavier, the tyres need to have a higher pressure.

      Thanks

  2. Hello,

    Please could you tell me where to find the manufacturer guidance on what the acceptable tyre speed ratings and load ratings are for a Hilux InvincibleX 2021 2.8? In the context of replacing the 265/60/16 110H Bridgestone’s fitted with a more aggressive tread 4×4 all terrain tyre.

    Thanks,

    1. Hi Mark,

      Congrats on your new Hilux.

      Your vehicle is fitted with 18″ wheels, not 16″.

      We’d recommend a load rating of at least 100. Speed rating is based on top speed. As standard your vehicle is fitted with tyres that have a speed rating of H, which is 130mph. We’d recommend the General Grabber AT3 tyre with a speed rating of H or S and load rating of 110 or 119.

      Thanks

  3. Hi Toyota

    I got a RAV4 Hybrid AWD (Dynamic) 2020, I couldn’t find the Tyre pressure monitor on my dash screen, did I miss something or it just show up on the screen if the tyre is under pressure??

    Look forward to your reply. Thanks

    Ricky

    1. Hi Ricky,
      Thanks for getting in touch with us.
      The tyre pressure monitoring system is designed to deliver a safety alert in the event of a significant loss of tyre pressure.
      It uses tyre pressure warning valves and transmitters to detect low tyre inflation pressure before serious problems arise.
      If the tyre pressure drops below a predetermined level, the driver is warned by a message and a warning light. This will only show up when the tyre is below the required pressure.
      However, this does not replace manual inspections, and each tyre should be regularly checked to see if it is inflated to the correct air pressure and has sufficient tread depth.
      You can read more about TPMS and how it works here: https://mag.toyota.co.uk/how-does-tpms-work/.
      Thanks.

  4. Hello, i have Yaris 2006 and tires specifications are 185/60 15 . Ehich is the recommended pressure on front and rear tires . Thank you.

    1. Hi Chris,

      The recommended tyre pressure will be in the owner’s manual and on a plate within the car’s frame, which is visible when you open the either the driver or front passenger door. As you are not based in the UK, the recommendation for your region may be different, so we can’t advise. Please contact Toyota in your region for more.

      Thanks

  5. Hi, I have a 2019 Toyota Corolla 225/40 R18 with only 13000 miles on the clock is it normal for me to have to change the front tyres due to uneven wear on the outside of the tyres ,both sides have similar wear?
    The dealer where I bought the car from said that all Toyota’s have this problem because of the additional weight of the electric motor. Is that true?

    1. Hi George,

      No, this is not true. The Corolla Hybrid hatchback weighs between 1295 and 1430 kg depending on specification, which is about the same as other vehicles in this segment. Tyre wear can be affected by a number of factors, particularly tyre pressure and driving style.

      Thanks

  6. Hi there,

    What about the XL tyres pressure. I own Avensis T27 station wagon with 16″ XL (reinforced ) tyres and at 2.4 bar front and 2.2 bar back tyre pressures seems like they are not proprely inflated.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Dim,
      Thanks for your comment.
      We would recommend contacting Toyota in your region for further help with your query.
      Thanks.

  7. Hi,
    I have Model: COROLLA COL-R COLN VVTI A
    Tyre Size: 195/60R15H

    This sized tyre came when we originally bought this and have been using since.
    Can you please advise me what tyre pressure should I keep in Front Tyres as well as Back, if different.
    Many thanks

  8. Hello Toyota UK – here’s a simple question, but what’s the answer?

    I have a 2.0 D-4D 2016 Avensis. Tyres are standard 17″ alloys, but I find them too harsh in terms of driving comfort. So, I want to try 16″ wheels so that the tyres give a more comfortable ride over the UK’s rough tarmac and potholes. As there’s about a finger tip’s gap between the front brake callipers and the inside of the 17″ alloys currently, would a set of 16″ steel wheels from the 1.6 petrol models have internal space to match the 17″ and avoid the callipers? The profile is of course also different I see. If not, does Toyota have a solution elsewhere? Softer shock absorbers maybe?

    1. Hi Steve,

      Sounds like a simple question, but unfortunately it’s not quite as straightforward as you would hope. A 16” steel wheel was available on the 1.6 diesel Avensis. Now, they should fit yours, but as we aren’t able to recommend modifying the vehicle away from manufacturer’s specification, we have no documentation or data internally that would guarantee that! There are no suspension alternatives available from Toyota for your vehicle either, sorry about that.

      Thanks

  9. I’ve got a 2021 Hilux Invincible X can you recommend a robust All Terrain tyre with a more aggressive pattern than the Bridgestone ones that came on the truck? Thanks Mark

    1. Hi Mark,

      Congrats on your new truck. There are plenty of AT tyres available for Hilux, but we aren’t permitted to recommend a specific tyre or brand. We recommend contacting a tyre specialist in your area for further advice.

      Thanks, and enjoy the Hilux!
