Tire pressure on a Flat tire

If you have a flat tire, how much psi you should see on the tire. I am talking about bridgestone RFT 18".

Reason I am asking this is that wife mentioned that she noticed that car was wobbling today at high speed. I was thinking it could be because of wet roads but not sure.

I checked the tire pressure and the front tires were 32 and rear were 37.5. Which I think are okay (little low). I have FTM and no indicator on the dash.

Any ideas?

Flat tires will yield little or no pressure. I would crawl under the car and see if anything is stuck under there, you'd be amazed how a piece of cardboard or something can affect the dynamics at high speeds. Then I would take it out and try to duplicate, could have been the piece of road where she was.

good luck.
