Toyota factory tire pressure recommendations?

Can someone tell me what the recommended tire pressures are for the base wheels with the 215/70-16 tires?

Thanks.

Look on the inside of your driver side door and theres a sticker that'll show the proper psi.

I have the 225/65-17 tires, so I probably have the placard that is specific for those wheels.

You are only going one size down, you should be ok with whatever stated on the placard.

I run 36.5 PSI front, 35.5 PSI rear on my factory 17" tires. I just wanted a data point to see what the factory recommends versus where I ended up.
