What is the correct tire pressure for Audi A3?

Where do I find the recommended tire pressure for Audi A3 ?

How to check your Audi A3 tire pressure?

Checking regularly all tires on your Audi A3, including your spare tire, once a month or before a long trip is recommended. Tires have been known to lose up to 1psi (0.06 bar) every month.

  1. Purchase a trusted tire pressure gauge.
  2. If possible check the pressure on your tires “cold” – before you’ve driven or at least three hours after you’ve driven.
  3. Insert tire pressure gauge into the valve stem on your tire.  When you hear a “psst” sound that’s air escaping the tire. (The escaping air shouldn’t affect pressure substantially, unless you hold down the air pressure gauge too long.)
  4. Compare the measured psi to the psi found on the sticker inside the driver’s door of your vehicle, in the Audi owner’s manual or sometimes Inside the fuel cap. DO NOT compare to the psi on your tire’s sidewall.
  5. If your psi is above the number, let air out until it matches. If below, add air until it reaches the proper number.

Over inflated and under inflated tires suffer more damage than those with the correct pressure and need to be changed more often. Vehicles with under-inflated tires have increased rolling resistance that requires more fuel to maintain the same speed.
