    • Hi Jayanath,
      In wagon R they advice the same tire pressure for both front and rear tires. In the manual they recommend 240 kPa (~35 psi). However with the Sri Lankan road conditions, I can recommend around 31 psi.

    • Hi,
      Normally it comes with the car, If your car doesn’t have one you can check with AMW who are the dealers for Suzuki in Sri Lanka. However, you should be able to find a suitable match in the local vehicle part shops too.

    • It depends on your road conditions, I think its similar to the Sri Lankan road conditions, So around 31 Psi. will suit you. However, If you are driving only in Highways, you can go for higher tier pressure (maybe even up to 35 Psi).

    • Hi Tharindu,
      I really don’t know any recommended value by the company, In the book itself, they only recommend tyre pressure for Japan. However as AMW started importing Japanese model, they might be able to do a recommendation. However, I like to recommend you around 31-35 psi depending on the road conditions that you are driving in. Always note that I’m not an expert in this area and I suggest you these based on my experience and recommendations I got from others.

    • Hi Rohi,
      Sometime back, I searched for an e-manual(pdf), which I failed to find for this model. However, there was a one for old Indian WagonR, which has no use. I have a hard-copy which I got with the car. Unfortunately, it’s in Japanese.

  1. Mr Romesh appreciate your post a lot ,,
    I just bought a stingray and don’t know Jack about it ,,(I drove it from the harbour to kandy,, without knowing about the sports mode or how to use the multifunction keys etc),,, so I badly need a manual ,, if not a tutorial site that gives the obvious info for dumbos like me…any help ?

    • I’m not sure as I own one, But you can check the tyre pressure recommended by Suzuki? It should be on the sticker as described in the article. If you can post a picture of that I might be able to help.

  2. Hi Guys
    Can u pls let me know the best fuel type for WagonR Stingray 2015 Nov. model. Is it 92 Octane or 95 Octane. Thanks.

  3. Hello Ranjitha.. thanks so much for the copy of the manual. Is this the same for the stingray model MH55S?
    Also would you know how to get the display screen that is in Japanese changed to English.
    The time on that shows Japan time and can it be changed to our time?
    Thanks and regards
