how often do you check...
After checking the PSI on all 4 tires, I decided to dig out my spare tire. After checking it, I found it to be at 36 PSI. It should be at 60 PSI! I inflated it and went about my day much happier that I took the time to check. It took me 2 years before I even bothered to check lol.

Not often enough. Mine had 14lbs.

I think the 05s fill to 50lbs. Can someone confirm?

EJ25subie05 12-05-2012 08:45 PM

its 60psi

Ya joking aren't you, 60psi. Are you talking about a space saver or a normal tyre. Here in Oz you wouldn't put anything over 40psi.

Why is it so high ?????

I keep a portable DC compressor with my spare.

Less than every two years. I know that because I've owned the car for two years and never checked the pressure. I do take it out when I autoX so I would have noticed if it was really low.

Every other oil change.

I swear when I bought my '12 Legacy that my dealer told me the spare is checked and monitored by the 'low tire pressure' indicator..
