Ford F150 Tire Pressure: Everything You Need To Know

It is important to regularly check your Ford F150 tire pressure. Generally, learning enough about F150 truck tires can help ensure ease and safety while driving.

In this article, I will discuss various topics related to the tire pressure of F150, including why it matters and how to check it. You will also read about tire pressure sensors and lights.

I added a pressure chart for Ford F150 tires as a bonus just before the conclusion of this article. It covers all the years from 2005 till 2022.

What Is the Recommended F150 Tire Pressure?

Ford Motor Company recommends that the psi (pound-force per square inch or pounds per square inch) for most F150 truck tires should be set at 35. This is to ensure the right balance of load-carrying capability, comfort, fuel economy, and traction. A higher psi than that won’t enhance the tire’s load-bearing capacity.

However, the LT275/65R18C OWL all-terrain tires that come with the Heavy-Duty Payload Package are an exception. They are made to bear a heavier maximum load at a stipulated tire pressure of 42 psi.

How to Search for Tire Pressure Readings in Your Ford F150?

The recommended tire pressure for your truck is shown on the tire label or the driver’s side door jamb sticker. It can be displayed in kPa (kilopascal) instead of psi. Avoid using the “max pressure” figure seen on the sidewall of your tires. Expect to get different air pressure requirements for aftermarket tires.

f150 tire pressure information position
You can find the tire and loading information on the driver’s side door jamb.

There’s also another way.

Most recent Ford F150 vehicles come with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that helps truck owners track tire pressure readings for all the tires. The system can be accessed via the instrument cluster display. Make use of the directional buttons installed on the steering wheel to navigate as you take the following steps:

Step 1: Go to the ‘Truck Info’ tab on the instrument cluster display.

Step 2: Choose the ‘Tire Pressure’ option.

Step 3: Push the ‘OK’ button.

How to Check Ford F150 Tire Pressure?

You now understand why it is important to keep track of the air pressure in your Ford F150 tires. But do you know how to perform a check? Before describing the steps, I will mention the tools you need and the cost involved.

Equipment

What you need for the process is a tire pressure gauge. This is usually available for use at most local gas stations along with air pumps. Gas stations are usually the best places to perform air pressure checks and also fill up your tires. These services may be available for free. There are three types of tire pressure gauges: digital, analog (dial), and pencil (stick-type).

Cost

Expect to buy the digital one for a price within the range of $8-$32. The analog ones cost between $18 and $50. You can get pencil gauges for as low as $5. Their prices depend on individual specs. Some gauges are combined with tire inflators, air compressors, etc.

Procedure

Checking Ford F150 tire pressure is easy with the steps below.

Step 1: Remove the tire screw (valve) cap from the valve stem. Do so by twisting the valve cap counter-clockwise.

Step 2: Put the tire pressure gauge atop the valve stem. Press it down till you can no longer hear the sound of escaping air.

Step 3: Read the pressure value indicated on the gauge. 

Most gauges need to be held in place on the tire valve stem for air pressure reading to be possible. Some gauges have to be removed to view the result.

You will see the air pressure on the screen of a digital gauge. Pencil or stick-type gauges have metering shafts (protruding from their bottoms) that indicate tire air pressure. Analog dials resemble clocks and feature simple needles that point at the air pressure value.

Step 4: Let some air out if the result indicates that the pressure is too high. 

Do so by pushing down the center stem on the tire valve stem. Perform small and quick pushes until you arrive at the desired value. Monitor the reduction of air pressure by checking the meter after each push.

Step 5: Return the valve cap to the valve stem after ascertaining the tire’s air pressure. Twist it back in place clockwise.

Note: You can check your truck’s tire pressure with the aid of the FordPass App, provided that FordPass™ Connect is installed in the vehicle.

Final Thoughts

The tires’ air pressure for Ford F150 should be checked monthly, especially during periods of changing temperature. You should examine your tires after rainfall when the tires are cold. This should be done if you haven’t driven the truck for a minimum of three hours. Warm tires can possess more pressure. Other situations that would require you to perform an inspection include the TPMS light coming on, reduced traction, increased vibration, imperfect handling or braking, and hitting a pothole.
