I know tire pressure should be checked "cold".
but should there be any adjustment for ambient temperature?
manual says front 32psi rear 35psi
I set the pressure correctly at a colder ambient and looking at the dash pressure reading ( after driving 100 yards) fronts at 38 and rear at 40. ambient was about 20F higher from when I set them.
bobl, "cold" is "ambient". How much time had elapsed from your setting the pressure 'til you drove "100yds" and the ambient temp was 20* higher? When I check and adjust t/p(as needed), I do it just before I start my drive. Also, since apparently you have TPMS, did you compare the dash pressure reading to whatever gauge you used to set the pressure?
