What Should My Hyundai Tire Pressure Be?

Hand Holding Tire Gauge to Tire

Maintaining your Hyundai tire pressure is vital to your safety on Weaverville roads and your vehicle’s performance. Your Hyundai vehicle has a recommended tire pressure that’s between 30 and 35 PSI (pounds per square inch), but every model has a different rating due to vehicle size, performance capabilities, and the type of tire it uses. You can check your tire pressure regularly with your Hyundai TPMS or a manual tire pressure gauge. Learn more about the TPMS Hyundai system installed on your dashboard and tire pressure tips with Hyundai of Asheville below, or contact our service team if you need help with your Hyundai tires.

Hyundai TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)

Most newer Hyundai models come equipped with Hyundai TPMS. The Hyundai Tire Pressure Monitoring System allows you to keep an eye on your tire pressure from your dashboard. From the moment you start driving, the TPMS will monitor your tire pressure to ensure they stay at the correct level. If the system detects that the tire pressure is too low or too high when you start your commute in Hendersonville, the system will alert you to take action. If the light flashes red for any of your tires, that tire is in need of assistance.

If you’ve just filled your tires to their proper PSI but your Hyundai TPMS is still alerting you to an issue, it’s possible a service professional may need to perform a Hyundai TPMS reset. Asheville-area drivers can visit our service center for fast and friendly service and have any other dashboard warning lights addressed at the same time.

Hyundai Tire Pressure Tips

If your tires are below their recommended PSI, they can wear faster due to an increase of friction between the road and your tires. Stay safe on your daily drives and increase the lifespan of your tires by following these tire pressure tips:

  • Check your tire pressure at least once a week. You can do this by viewing your TPMS Hyundai display on your instrument cluster.
  • If you have an older model Hyundai without a TPMS monitor, you can check your tire pressure using a manual gauge. You can buy these at most Black Mountain auto stores or order them online. Follow the instructions with your chosen tire pressure gauge to find the PSI of each tire
  • Tires can naturally lose 1-2 PSI per month, depending on your driving habits.
  • Pressure can fluctuate with shifts in outside temperature as well, especially in extreme cold.
  • If you notice a tire needs air frequently, it’s possible there is a hole or nail somewhere in the tread. This can be an easy repair when caught early, or it may require a tire replacement.
