What is the Recommended Tire Pressure for a Mazda?
During every drive around Tampa and Sarasota, your vehicle’s tires are slowly starting to lose pressure. Your fuel economy gets worse as you lose tire pressure, and the more you lose the closer you are to getting a flat or damaging your tire. That’s why you need to be regularly checking and inflating to the standard PSI for tires to ensure your tires are safe. What is the recommended tire pressure for a Mazda? Cox Mazda has the answers with out recommended Mazda tire pressure chart, as well as a guide for testing your tire pressure.
It’s important to wait until your tires are cold before checking in order to get an accurate reading. After driving more than a mile, wait at least three hours to ensure that the tires have properly cooled off. Mazda tires should be filled to approximately these measurements:
|Vehicle||Mazda3||Mazda6||Mazda CX-3||Mazda CX-5||Mazda CX-9||Mazda MX-5 Miata|
|Tire Pressure||36 psi||36 psi for 17-inch/35 psi for 19-inch||36 psi for front/33 psi for rear||34 psi for 17-inch/36 psi for 19-inch||36 psi for 18-inch/34 psi for 20-inch||29 psi|
How Do I Check My Mazda Tire Pressure?
Once you know your model’s standard PSI for tires, follow these steps to check your Mazda tire pressure:
- Remove valve cap from tire.
- Gently place the pressure gauge over tire valve.
- Carefully remove tire pressure gauge after receiving a reading.
- If the reading is low, inflate air in tires to recommended tire pressure listed above and on the sidewalls of the tires.
- If tire pressure is too high, squeeze the metal centerpiece of the tire valve to release air until the appropriate level is reached.
- Place the cap back on the valve after tire inflation pressure is correct.
- Repeat process for each tire until each is filled to the same level.
Why is Maintaining Your Mazda Tire Pressure So Important?
Keeping up on your recommended Mazda CX-5 tire pressure may not seem like an important part of vehicle maintenance, but regularly checking your Mazda tire pressure makes a dramatic difference in driving performance. Your tires will fluctuate depending on temperature, and cold weather tire pressure will be different than the warmer seasons. When you drive with the standard PSI for your tires, you will experience:
- Prolonged tire life
- Improved fuel efficiency
- Smooth handling
- Even tire wear
- Optimum tire contact patch
- Less likely to damage wheels on potholes/hazards

If your Mazda3 tires don’t feel like they are performing as they should, it’s probably time to check their pressure.
