Hi Aidan, If you are filling up from the stages that you mention, there is always a reserve tank of petrol. Low profile tyres have less rolling resistance and drag than higher walled tyres, so inflating them to the same level as high profile rubber can give a harsh ride and increase road noise. Reinforced tyres are adapted to withstand loads and pressures greater than those laid down for standard tyres.
Several factors need to be considered: from the type and size of the car you have, to the way you use your vehicle in relation to the daily routes you take. For example, if you are filling it up at the start of the warning light, there will still be a reserve tank of petrol for you to use. Original equipment tires are the tires the vehicles comes with when you buy it new from the manufacturer.

Hi Andrew, Thank you for your post. The Compliance plate is usually on one of the front door pillars, or inside the glovebox lid. Is there a general government recommendation for tyre pressure? What is the maximum and minimum tyre sizes width, profile and rim that I can use? It will also show the recommended tyre pressure for normal driving and for fully loaded driving, and these pressures are the pressures you should use as a starting point to determine the best pressure for your usage. The diff spacer is really over rated in my personal opinion. Good morning Tom, The reason we include this data is because in Germany it is legal to drive at high speeds on the autobahn and it would be negligent not to include this data.

Also in case unseen budget constraints occur what would be the biggest i could put on the lux just stock? Pressures vary because larger diameter wheels use lower profile tyres. Please check with your insurer, however, before making a purchase decision. The rear tyres should be inflated to 33 psi at speeds at or below 99mph and to 38 at speeds above.
The Compliance plate is usually on one of the front door pillars, or inside the glovebox lid. At speeds above 99mph, the front tyres should be inflated to 41 psi. Just a good 'start' point!
