Hello everyone, I live in Canada. This is my first time driving an X in a Canadian winter. I'm driving on winter tires but my question is about tires pressure. Do I have to have 35psi or is better to lower them. It's my daily drive, also I do few highway drives. Any suggestions? TIA

Funny I just commented on that concept 5 minutes ago for an old thread. I'm nearly 60, always lived in Canada, and I've never heard of people taking air out of their tires for winter. If anything, when the deep freeze hits, physics will take care of that for you. I typically monitor my tire pressure around January and ADD air as I see the pressure loss due to cold temperatures. What I mean by cold temperatures is below -20C or below 0 on the Fahrenheit scale. I want to run my tires at the proper pressure, any season.

Here are some other sites with advice on this:

I thought everyone knew about summer vs winter air!

When you swap out the summer air, do you do the same for your horns? I like to top up my horn with more air at every oil change. Oh, and also refill the fuel injectors - that's one I learned from the receptionist at work.
