G70 Tire Pressure Sticker

I just discovered that my G70 Design Edition has the wrong sticker on the door frame for the factory tire pressures. The car comes with 18" wheels and tires, but the sticker is for a 19" staggered setup! Seems pretty dumb.
I was wondering if others had this same mistake on their cars. Is the sticker put on at the factory, or by the stealer?

I found the correct info (hopefully) in the owner's manual, and it's different from the staggered 19" setup. Should be 36 F and 39 R.
I did a cut and paste below, didn't turn out great, but:

8-4
Inflation Pressure
Normal Load
Front Rear Front Rear
Full size tire
All vehicle 225/45R18 8.0J x 18
250 (36) 270 (39)

You got me curious, so I had to check.
The sticker is for 18" wheel/tires.
My G70 has 18" all around.

im pretty sure this is put on at the factory. we had a member with one white door panel on a black interior a while ago so seems like a mistake they could make

Geez. I'll have to see if the dealer can get the right one. I've seen stickers on other cars that included the info for multiple tire sizes. That would have been easier and made more sense.

They should be. I can't check availability right now, but there is a part# so it should be orderable.

Yeah. Hopefully the wheels you have are the wheels you're supposed to.
They are, 18x8, same style as shown in the pictures for the Design Edition.

It's also AWD (maybe all the Design Editions are?). I've got the dark, 20 spoke wheels.
However, you've got me curious now, so I did some Google searching. I do see at least one site that shows it with 19" ten spoke wheels. Hmmm...

Upon further digging, it appears that there are RWD Design editions, and they come with 19" ten spoke wheels. Not sure if they are staggered or not.
I find it very hard to get much info online, such as a sales brochure, for the limited edition models. I do have one in a drawer somewhere.

There are RWD Design Editon with 19" staggered 10 spoke wheels. Here you have a pictured I took back in January at one dealer parking lot. If you zoom in you can read the sticker.

Thanks, so that confirms it. My AWD car apparently got the tire pressure sticker for a RWD model.
I told the service manager they could put on a set of 19" wheels if that was easier than ordering the proper sticker. 😂

Your car has a sticker of an AWD with 19" wheels like an AWD Sport or AWD Dynamic. RWD cars with 19" have the same PSI front and rear but AWD cars have 2 PSI more in the front because of the engine/tranny weight.
