Tyre pressure and weight rating plate

Cleaned up the garage, found parts laying around, but it turned out to be a complete Volvo 480? If you want to sell your car (480 only) you can place an advert here.

Tyre pressure and weight rating plate

Post by royhedger » Sun Dec 24, 2023 11:54 pm

Hello,
Does anyone know where I can get a tyre pressure and weight data plate ( sticker) from please? Its the one below the door lock on the B pillar.

Or can anyone photograph theirs so I can have one made please?

Slightly confused as to what you're after, Roy: on a 400 series Volvo the tyre pressure sticker is on the back edge of the door, just below the lock. Weights are on the slam panel plate under the bonnet.

They don't have the same stickers as later models had in various places on the B pillar itself.....

I think he means the PSI & BAR pressure ratings for the tyres just below the lock on the inside of the door. I don't think it has weight ratings though, like you say.
My 92 MY has the pressure stickers on the doors at least.

Roy - I'll try and get a picture of the sticker for you tomorrow.

Thats what I'm assuming - Roy has a V70 which doubtless like my V50 has b-pillar stickers giving trim details, weights and tyre pressures. There is no such thing on a 400 series save that tyre pressures on the door itself.

Hence my question as I suspect he is looking for something he (understandably) thinks is missing but doesn't actually exist.....

Thanks chaps. It is just the tyre pressure sticker. In the hand book it says "Tyre pressure and Load data" which I assumed to be the tyre pressure, towing and weight data, but it's obviously just the tyre pressures under different load scenarios 😀

Standard is front 30, rear 27; full load is front 33, rear 30.

I run 33 and 31, but that's just my preference.....

Further variation, for completeness...

From a late car (1994).

The red is reflective.
