As per the title, what tyre pressures do people run both on/off road on the duster?

Also does anyone know what A/T tyres are available and approximate prices please? I believe they are all 215/65/R16 across the range?

Thanks

If you do drop the pressure for sand or mud, don't go lower than 10-15 psi, or the tyre may unseat from the bead.

Thanks and what about the tyre pressure monitor system, if deliberating reducing tyre pressure for off road use? Can it be disabled? Or will fitting valves without the sensors disable the system? Or will the system continue to warn because it can't speak to the sensors? Technology is great when used correctly as long as it can be manually overridden if required. Cheers

It can't be over ridden and if the control module doesn't get a "all ok" signal from the sensors it reports an error. It stops flashing after 5 mins and can be reset but it does return.

Can it not be reset after lower pressure has been set? I mean after resetting the tyre pressures on the gauge at the garage, reset the system then it should only go off if the new pressure drops?
I'm only going by what they do with the ones on a daf hgv, but sometimes even that comes up with a deflating tyre from time to time, all that's needed is a tpi reset, obviously after a couple of well aimed kicks to the tyrewall.
I did have a complete flat on one of the front tyres once, the tpi didn't even acknowledge it, only after I'd stopped and had a new tyre fitted it said the new tyre was low on pressure.

This is just a guess but if all the tyres are at the same lower pressure then maybe the monitoring system will take that as normal range.

Lifestyle Renault. Absolutely, 100% useless.
oh, perhaps a tire specialist like bush, or mcc if you have them there may be more use.
I would try decreasing the pressures then reset the system near the air pump in case you need to fill them Again, and see if it picks up on it, Im guessing that they can only pick up loss from the amount inflated after system reset, I can't see them having a set Psi due to normal/ economy inflation some tyres allow, for example my pixo normal Psi was 32, the economy was 40, unless that's all finished now I'm not sure.
Thankfully I don't have them, and (hopefully!!!!) I'll never have to go offroad, but having knowledge of them, it can be quite scary when it starts d'dinging the first time when your weaving down a country lane.

Sorry if it's a stupid question, but how do I go about reseting the tyre pressure monitoring system after I've adjusted the tyre pressures to lower pressures? TIA...

In the laureate scroll through the display menu by pressing the end of the rh control stalk until the tp system is displayed, then long press the stalk to reset. Dunno about other models.

Thanks, as Murphys law would have it, I need the reset procedure for the access model please, as it doesn't have the fuel computer etc. Cheers...
