2009 Audi S5: Tire Check before Road Trip

March 22, 2010

This week I'm rolling to Vegas in our long-term 2009 Audi S5 again, this time to attend the
CTIA Wireless conference.

I decided to check the tire pressures before I went. The tires are high-po Summers sized 235/35ZR19 96Y all-around.

I was surprised to see that the fronts want 39 psi! That's the highest I've seen for a passenger car.
Do you know of another car that takes that much air?

Another surprise was the Mercury content on the S5, which I think would be common to many vehicles. Who knew?

Catch the CTIA coverage this week on Straightline.
