HI, I will be driving 20 miles to my local Honda dealer for an oil change and I'd like them to fill up my tires to 35 psi, cold measurement. However, the tires will be hot. What does 35 psi cold equal in a hot tire? Although I do own an air compressor at home and am able to fill my my own tires, for reasons I don't care to get into, it is not comfortable for me to fill the tires with air right now. (back issues) So, what does 35 psi equal in a hot tire?

As I said it is not comfortable for me to fill the tires right now (back issues).

Here is a link that will help your tire situation. I'm sure by the time your oil change is finished they should be able to set your vehicles pressure correctly.

Over shoot it a bit, do 39 or 40 and tomorrow morning check/drop it if needed. you will be close, and as someone mentioned-have them do it when complete on the service and you should be close.

Exact will take checking when cold-close you can hit any time

Maybe PSI was "per square inch" for him? :)

Why does your air pressure while your car is sitting in the garage matter? &nbsp; &nbsp;I monitor and manage air pressures once the tires are at operating temps, as do just about everyone who tracks their car. &nbsp; &nbsp; The key is to optimize air pressures for the typical operating temperature range. Cold temps are relatively irrelevant.
