Re: thanks and further info on tire pressure

Thanks everyone - You've been much more helpful than anyone at my Toyota dealer or the Toyota 800 #! I'm going to recommend they check out this site to keep up to date. My only question is about the tire inflation. I've heard Tom and Ray Magliazzi caution against running higher tire pressure due to safety issues. Would the 40-42 pressure recommended on this list be a safety issue?
All Prius have the Toyota recommended pressure of 35psi front, 33psi rear.

The OEM Bridgestone Potenza RE92 XL tires (in the US) for the 2001-2003 Prius has on the sidewall the marking of max cold pressure of 50psi.
The OEM Goodyear Integrity (in the US) tires on the 2004 Prius come with a max cold pressure of 44psi marked on the sidewall.

So long as you're not running UNDERINFLATED (less than Toyota's specs) or OVERINFLATED (over the max pressure listed on the tire), you should be OK.
