Curious as to weight distribution - for a 2007 Front wheel drive, 2 row seat SF. Sticker says 5115 GVWR. I'm guessing 65/35. Thanks

So, 2 months and Nobody knows? :whistling: I'll try and find a scale and see what I can come up with. Thanks, anyway.

Sorry...nobody's ever asked that question before and I don't believe it's in the manual. Let us know what you find.

Doesn't surprise me that no-one knows - unless you're a race engineer it's generally irelevant.

Just pop yours on a weighbridge, that'll give you the answer.

The concept is to get the "weight load" for the each axle, divide by 2 to get the weight load for each tire. Then ratio the weight load per tire to the max load at max inflatable pressure for each tire to get the percentage of PSI for proper inflation. Add 10% for a 'safety' factor. Much more accurate than using factory recommendations for tire inflation. If I can get the numbers, Ill post my results.

That's where the factory calculation STARTS - then they factor in suspension design, roadholding and handling characteristics.

Don't kid yourself that you know better than the engineers.
