Your Nissan Frontier’s ideal tire pressure is 35 psi for the front and rear tires.
Written by Jennifer Justice

Based on Nissan's recommendation, you want to keep your Nissan Frontier’s tire pressure at 35 pounds per square inch (psi) for all tires. 
Keeping your Nissan Frontier at the recommended tire pressure is important for the safety of your vehicle, your passengers, and yourself. Not only do you want to avoid getting stuck by the side of the road thanks to a flat, but the wrong tire pressure can lead to a costly accident. Beyond the danger of a blowout, tires can affect your ability to steer and the comfort of your ride, so there are plenty of reasons to pay attention to your tires.

What is the right tire pressure for a Nissan Frontier?

If your Frontier was built after 2005, then its original tires should be inflated to 35 psi based on Nissan’s recommendations—this applies to both the front and back tires. You can confirm this number for your specific model year and trim level by checking your owner’s manual or looking for the “Tire and Loading Information” sticker placed within the doorframe on the driver’s side of the pickup. 
It’s important to know the psi for your vehicle since pickup trucks have some of the widest variations in tire pressure. If you switch out the original tires, find out what psi the new tires need. Don’t assume it matches the 35 psi of the OEM factory tires.

How to check Nissan Frontier tire pressure

Newer Frontiers include a tire pressure display in the middle of the dashboard’s instrument cluster, which shows you the tires' current psi. Like any newer vehicle, your pickup uses a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), so a warning light and a “Tire Pressure Low - Add Air” message will appear if something is wrong with the tire pressure.
However, you don’t want to rely purely on this technology, since it doesn’t measure the psi while you’re driving under 16 mph or when you have a sudden pressure loss, like with a blowout. Check your tire pressure as part of your regular
car maintenance schedule
.
Get your
tire pressure gauge
out (or use the one at the gas station’s air-filling pump), then remove the valve stem cap on one of the tires. Next, press the tire pressure gauge onto the valve stem and see what the gauge reads. You can add or remove air from the tire based on whether it matches the ideal psi, then repeat the steps for each tire.
Pay attention to any hints from your Frontier that the tire pressure is wrong. Check your tire pressure if you notice these signs:
  • You can’t steer as well
  • You start hearing a flapping noise
  • The ride isn’t as smooth
  • Your pickup loses fuel efficiency
  • Slower stopping speeds
Remember, it’s always better to check your tires to be safe.

How often should you check tire pressure?

You should check your tires once a month at the minimum. If you are getting ready for a trip or if the outdoor temperature changes significantly, you’ll also want to recheck your tires.

How to tell if your Nissan Frontier needs new tires

Your Frontier’s tires should last about 50,000 miles or six years under average wear and tear; however, your tires’ longevity can be affected if you haul loads frequently or if you drive under difficult road conditions, among other things, so keep an eye out for warning signs! 
If you notice any cracking, bulging spots, or that the tread depth is getting thin, get your tires replaced.
You might be familiar with the penny method for checking your tread depth (though some experts recommend using a quarter instead)—using a penny, place the coin into a tread groove so that Lincoln stands on his head. If you can spot most or all of his head above the tread, it’s time to get new tires.

How to reset the Nissan Frontier tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light

What if you checked your tires and that “Tire Pressure Low - Add Air” warning light is still blinking at you? If you just filled your tires, you’ll need to drive your Frontier above 16 mph for the TPMS to register the new tire pressure. If that doesn’t work, you might have to
reset your TPMS
. Fortunately, there’s a button for that.
First, turn the key to “on,” but don’t actually start your pickup. You should see a reset button near your steering wheel on the left—hold it down for about 5 seconds. The warning light should flash a couple of times, then go off. Start your pickup, then wait 20 minutes for the sensor to finish resetting—and that’s it.
You can also check in case something is interfering with the signal to the TPMS. For example, radio frequencies, transmitters, DC/AC converters, and even metallic coverings over the windows can trip the warning light. 
Also, if you haven’t allowed the TPMS system to register a new tire’s serial number, or you used a non-Nissan brand tire, those can cause problems with the system. If you see a low tire warning light but not the “Tire Pressure Low — Add Air” message, then the system is trying to tell you something is wrong with the TPMS itself. 
Check for other possibilities beyond tire pressure, such as a nearby radio signal, and if you can’t get the system to reset, then it’s good to get your vehicle checked out. You want to know your tires are good to go before you hit the road!
