Having read this in the Sticky (thank you AWDFreak), I went out to check my pressures. The door panel sticker says it should be 33F/32R but I get 36F/35R, cold parked overnite. That's nearly 10% higher than spec. I checked them three times with both analog and digital gauges.It is absolutely imperative that owners/drivers maintain their main service tire pressures, tire wear... to fully prolong the AWD system's driveline components. As I have found out the hard way with my previous Subaru, the center differential can be surprisingly sensitive to slight differences many uninformed or new-to-Subaru drivers would deem acceptable.
My car's just 3 weeks new so I can only assume these are the pressures they sent me home from the dealer with. Does this sound like something to be concerned about?
I should also call back my sales guy & ask him about it too. But I was curious what the community here might think—am I overthinking this?
