My partner has a 2013 Mini One with 175/65 tyres.

This is what's shown on the inside of the driver's door:

There's only two of us in the car, it's never full.

My tyre inflator only shows 0-100 of one measurement and 0-7 of another.

I presume 240 is 24 on that 0-100 scale?

So all four tyres = 24?

If so, when she had the car serviced a few months ago, they inflated each one to 30.

Which is correct, 24 or 30?

The upper figures on your tyre inflation placard in the car are in BAR. (2.4 etc.) like it says :wink:

That's the inner scale on your pump. So about 2 and a half on that one.
The other figures are KPa(Kilo Pascals) which are uncommon in the UK. Yes. the outer scale on your pump appears to be PSI.
I would use the inner one, as no mental arithmetic required!


Are you in/ is the car from the UK?

Both images are in the UK.

So it's 2.4 in that 1-7 scale?

So around 34psi each tyre?

Yes.
It's the bottom set of figures you want for your size of tyres. Seems to be 2.4 for front and rear.

The other scale is NOT psi. Edit: Although 2.4 Bar does convert to about 34 psi

Just stick to the 2.4 Bar

The other scale on his inflator is PSI according to the picture.

On closer inspection, you're right - I sort of jumped on the post in too much of a hurry, thinking that the outer scale was Kilopascals and not wanting the OP to think that following the outer scale was the way to go - hence the Edit after checking the converter and realising that 34 psi was the same as 2.4 bar. :oops:

I blame the wine: or is it the Government? I can't remember. :mrgreen:
