What is the right tire pressure for a Nissan Juke?

The appropriate tire pressure for your Juke can be as low as 33 psi or as high as 36 psi for both rear and front tires. It’s heavily dependent on the trim level you own. 
Nissan has five trims for the Juke: S, SV, SL, Nismo, and Nismo RS. The Nismo and the Nismo RS are the sport-oriented versions of the Juke.
In addition to trim level, the features you have on each trim may change what your recommended tire pressure should be. For the S, SV, and SL trims, if you have two-wheel drive (2WD) with continuous variable transmission (CVT), your ideal tire pressure is 36 psi for all tires. This changes to 33 psi if the car has manual transmission (MT) and 35 psi if the trim has all-wheel drive (AWD).
For Nismo and Nismo RS models, the recommended tire pressure is 35 psi for AWD vehicles. If you have 2WD with manual transmission, the tire pressure is 33 psi for both rear and front tires. For spare tires across all trims, the pressure is 60 psi.
If you have an older version of the Nissan Juke, here’s a quick breakdown of the tire pressures you can expect for earlier model years:

How to check Nissan Juke tire pressure

It’s fairly easy to check your tire pressure—all you need is a pressure gauge. Just remove the valve stem cap from your tire and press the gauge into the valve stem to get a reading. Be sure to not press too hard, or else air may escape. You can use a portable tire inflator or go to a tire filling station to check your pressure. 
If any of your tires are under- or overinflated, just add and release air as needed. If you want to double-check your recommended air pressure, you can look for the tire information label on the central pillar of your Juke’s driver’s side door frame.
Your Juke’s tire pressure warning light may illuminate if one or more tires is underinflated. If this happens while driving, calmly pull over to a safe location to do a pressure check and correct as needed.

How often should you check tire pressure?

Nissan recommends that you check each tire’s pressure monthly. You should include the spare in your monthly checks as well. Tire pressure should always be checked only when the tires are cold. Tires are considered cold after the vehicle has been parked for over three hours or driven less than a mile at moderate speeds.
Tire pressure rises and falls depending on the temperature of your vehicle and the outside climate. If your tire pressure is higher than normal right after driving, don’t change it. Similarly, don’t be too alarmed if tire pressure lowers during cold weather—just correct it if the low tire pressure warning light comes on.

How to tell if your Nissan Juke needs new tires

All tires degrade with age, meaning a tire may be unusable even if there aren’t visible signs of wear and tear. This is why Nissan suggests you have a technician look at all your tires (including the spare) after six years of use and change them as needed.

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

You may notice that your low tire pressure warning light stays on even after you’ve corrected the pressure in all of your tires. This is normal—it usually means that your TPMS hasn’t received the updated pressure information yet. 
Nissan suggests that you drive the Juke at speeds above 16 mph after adjusting your tire pressure. This will activate the TPMS, which should sense that the pressure has been corrected and turn the warning light off. 
If this doesn’t work, there’s also a TPMS reset button under your steering wheel that you can use to
reset your TPMS
. To do this, switch on your ignition without starting the engine, press this button until the warning light flashes and turns off, and then release the button and switch off the ignition. The next time you use your Juke, the warning light should be gone.
If these solutions don’t work, there may be issues with the pressure sensors in your tires or with the TPMS itself, in which case your best course of action is to bring your Juke to an authorized dealer for assistance.
