Please could someone let me know the correct tire pressures (incl spare) for a 1999 cherokee, normal on-road use.

Many thanks.

What size tire is it? This give you a little idea about pressures for on the highway and a lot of info about offroad pressures. The best way I've found to figure out the proper inflation, is draw a chalk like across the width of the tread and slowly drive forward so the tire makes a couple of revolutions. Once the chalk has begun to wear off, take a look at it. If the chalk is worn off equally across the width, then that's the proper inflation, if the edges are worn off more than the center, it's underinflated and if only the center is worn, then it's overinflated. Overinflation will wear out the tire more quickly and the tire can be damaged more easily when hitting debris. Underinflation is what causes heat to build up and the tires to blow (remember the Explorer fiasco?) Anyway, check 'em when they're cold after it's been sitting all night.
edit: moving this to the tire section since it's good info for all models. Wink

It should also be posted on the drivers door, or in the owners manual.
I normally run mine about 5lbs under max when I am towing.
For normal daily driving, I run them at @35 psi.

I have a TJ though.
