Not soccer but tire related. Im curious why Mazda recommends different tire pressures for the same car and tire size in the US and Mexico. Look here

Most Americans weigh more than Mexicans.

Yup, but probably not enough to change tire pressure

Probably because the ambient temp is higher in Mexico than a lot of parts of USA.

But the unladen pressure is lower...hmmm

Possibility of rougher roads and lower sidewall aspect means more chance of sidewall pinch and flat or blow-out. Harder tires can stand more impact w/o failure. Ride suffers though ...

I dunno about running 45 series tires in Baja ... laugh

Then why would they characterize it by loading and not by condition?

Yes, so perhaps the road temperature is higher and the pressure still elevates within the tire?

They are not the same tires, I just think that it is funny that they give a spec for "full load".

Mazda manuals seem to have a few weird things differentiating Mexico from Canada and the U.S. in their recommendations.

Mexico would not be the prime example to use in order to call Americans fat. I live Texas and been to Mexico dozens of time, lots of fat Mexicans, too.

You would think they would require a higher tire pressure.
