    Under inflation has it's downsides. It increases the rolling resistance, thus increasing the fuel consumption, creates uneven tread wear and affects your braking.
    Under inflation is estimated to lower mileage by around 0.4 percent for every one PSI drop in pressure of all four tires.

    Both Over-inflation and Under-inflation have their dangers. The best is what the manufacturer recommends.

    NOTE : But if on a 4WD in sand (like the sand dunes in the Middle East or even on the beach) you need to deflate the tyres. It increases the contact pitch. The side walls bulge out and the vehicle will easily float in the sand. (instead of sinking)
    Even while off-roading it's better to reduce the tyre pressure. You need to keep an inflator at hand to pump the tyres again when back on road.

    Also lowering the pressure causes an increased risk of aquaplaning...
    Thank you...

    I had Yokohama tyres in my car.. with good pressure it was smooth.. recently had to change all 4 tyres...used a Chinese tyre..rubber seems bit hard . But i feel it vibrates a bit with the recommended pressure..need to lower a bit and check...
    Try it and update the thread. I'll do the same.

    I've been pumping 32 since the car was brand new and had no issues 🤷‍♂️
    Try with low psi. May be even comfortable.

    I also have a set of Goodyear (Japanese and German) tyres and I’m also pumping 28psi and the manufacture recommendation is 32psi. 32is too much as I feel. May be the rubber is now old and got hardened 😢 or something. Need to look for new tyres now. 😬
    Buy and put it soon. Tyres are difficult to find these days or you'll have to use either Chinese shit or Ferrantino

    I go by the recommended by the manufacturer 36 front- 34 rear
    No vibration and noise ?

    This is for Japanese roads and temperature I guess.
    I've did the same mistake for years it seems.

    Aqua eke Front 32 / Back 30
    Yeah, this is what is usually mentioned but he is telling that psi is not suitable for Sri Lankan roads and temperature.
