Tyre pressures

I have a 1994 w140 Mercedes Benz S500 which i purchased second hand. It is a lovely car, but unfortunately it came without the tyre pressure tables that is normally pasted to the inside of the petrol flap. Can somebody please email me the information i seek?

Thank you.

RE: Tyre pressures

What I usually do is look at the sidewall of the tyre. Usuall its from 35-50 PSI depend on the tyres size. Find the MAX PSI and inflate it about 2-4/5 PSI less. Why? When driving pressure build up inside the tyre = over inflate.

RE: Tyre pressures

Did you try the Drivers door jam? Should have a label there too.

Why not go to dealer and get a label?

RE: Tyre pressures

Hi, Andre, and welcome to the forum.

My tire specs and pressures were also in the manual.

I wonder if it had some body repairs done; the replacement gas covers don't come with the labels.

Good luck and enjoy the ride,
