Sorry for bringing up an age old question, but my wife and I are going on a day trip tomorrow and I'm questioning my smarts. On our 2002 MDX, we have Firestone Expedition LE. On the tires is printed 44PSI MAX. On the door pillar is 32PSI Cold. That's a big difference from 32 to 44.
Any thoughts or advice please and thank you.

The pressure on the tire is the max pressure allowed by the tire manufacturer. The pressure on the pillar is what the vehicle manufacturer recommends tires be pumped to.

I usually take the pillar pressure and add 1 or 2 psi, so anywhere from 32-34 and you should be fine.

Have a good trip! :29:

Thank you, sir.
3 of the tires are around 38, the 4th at 32.
I was going to keep them all around 35, so I think I'm good.
