The recommended cold tire inflation pressure and tire size is displayed on the tire and loading information label.
Remove the tire valve cap.
Press the tip of the tire pressure gauge onto the tire valve.
Read the pressure using the graduations of the gauge.
If the tire inflation pressure is not within the recommended levels, adjust tire pressure.
If you add too much air, press the center of the valve to lower.
After completing the tire inflation pressure measurement and adjustment, apply soapy water to the valve and check for leakage.
Reinstall the tire valve cap.
Make sure to maintain the proper tire inflation pressure. Tire inflation pressure should be checked at least once per month. However, Toyota recommends that tire inflation pressure be checked once every two weeks.
You should check tire inflation pressure every 2 weeks, or at least once a month.

When checking tire inflation pressure, observe the following:
If your vehicle has been parked for at least 3 hours and has not been driven for more than 1 mile or 1.5 km, you will get an accurate cold tire inflation pressure reading.
The appearance of the tire can be misleading. In addition, tire inflation pressures that are even just a few pounds off can degrade ride and handling.
Passengers and luggage weight should be placed so that the vehicle is balanced.
Keep your tires properly inflated. Otherwise, the following conditions may occur and result in an accident causing death or serious injury.
Be sure to reinstall the tire valve caps.
Without the valve caps, dirt or moisture could get into the valve and cause air leakage, which could result in an accident. If the caps have been lost, replace them as soon as possible.
