    Hi Guys

    Just hoping for a bit of advice!

    Has anyone any idea what the tyre pressures for a 96 Ford Transit Tourneo minibus are. Tyres on there are 175R14C. I have searched on the van and online but I am still scratching my head.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've tried all the sites that ask for reg number and they can't find my van. Usually this would be a simple job and I would download the user manual from the manufacturers website but not now.

    If the tyres were 185 or 195 I could get the details but they are 175s

    I know its old but still!!

    Its a 2.5cc 1996 Ford tourneo but all the sites I have found only go from 00-08.
    Its making me feel very negative about my tiny transit.

    Thanks

    Our Local ATS have been more than Helpful with my Autosleeper
    They got nothing out of it but will certainly use them in the future
    although attitudes at individual branches may vary.

    if you know your actual axle weights there's a chart in downloads which will give you the pressures.
    bit complicated but does work
    haven't figured out how to paste links on this kindle so.follow below

    go to homepage then scroll to resources in the left hand column
    click downloads
    click useful tools
    click motorhome tyre data
