Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Recommended Tire Inflation Pressure

On the tire label you will find the recommended tire inflation pressure in both kPa and psi for the tires installed as original equipment on the vehicle. It is very important that the inflation pressure of the tires on your vehicle is maintained at the recommended pressure.

You should check the tire pressure regularly to insure that the proper inflation pressure is maintained.

Refer to Tires on .

NOTE Tire pressures listed on the vehicle placard or tire information label indicate the recommended cold tire inflation pressure, measured when the tires are cold, after the vehicle has been parked for at least 3 hours. As you drive, the temperature in the tire warms up, increasing the tire pressure.

WARNING Always check the tire infl ation pressures on a regular basis according to the recommended tire infl ation pressure on the tire label and in conjunction with the information in this owner's manual: Driving your vehicle with under-infl ated tires is dangerous.

Under-infl ation is the most common cause of failures in any kind of tire and may result in severe cracking, tread separation or “blowout”, with unexpected loss of vehicle control and increased risk of injury. Under-infl ation increases sidewall fl exing and rolling resistance, resulting in heat buildup and internal damage to the tire. It results in unnecessary tire stress, irregular wear, loss of control and accidents. A tire can lose up to half of its air pressure and not appear to be fl at! It is impossible to determine whether or not tires are properly infl ated just by looking at them.

Location of the Tire Label (Placard)
You will find the tire label containing tire inflation pressure by tire size and other important information on the driver's side B-pillar or on the edge of the driver's door frame. SAMPLE ...

Checking Tire Pressure
