In spite of the outdated illustrations seen in many places, on a RADIAL tire overinflation does NOT lead to center tread wear unless it is EXTREME overinflation. Those illustrations are holdovers from bias ply days. On radials, underinflation is MUCH more commonly the cause of center tread wear, especially on rear tires.

The placard is the MINIMUM cold inflation pressure.

Good luck,
