Michelin 4x4 O/R XZL tyre pressure - Defender 110 series

Question from visitor, 19/06/2012 :I am using Michelin 4x4 O/R XZL on a defender 110 series. I see a pressure of 75PSI on the tyre itself but have been told to run front pressure of 28PSI and rear pressure of 48PSI. Most of my driving is highway with some offroad use.

Thank you for your question.

The tyre pressure written on the sidewall of the tyre indicates the pressure for use when the vehicle is at it's maximum load.

The normal pressure is advised by the vehicle manufacturer. As we don't know the tyre size, we can't specify a suitable tyre pressure. In any case, this information is usually included in the onboard documents.

We would also like to add that the 4x4 O/R XZL isn't an adapted tyre for non-frequent non-professional 4x4 use and frequent motorway use.

Happy driving,
