What is the Right Tire Pressure for My Hyundai?

DGDG 2021 Hyundai Elantra Banner

Keeping your tires properly inflated is critical for optimal performance and safe driving on the Sunnyvale streets. While each new Hyundai will have different maintenance requirements, our Capitol Hyundai service team is here to help you learn about keeping your vehicle in top shape. Keep reading to discover important facts about your tires, or reach out to our Hyundai Tire center if you have immediate questions.

Hyundai Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Your Hyundai is equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to help you gauge the status of your tires with ease. Your TPMS Hyundai system will evaluate your tire pressure from the moment you set out on the Santa Clara streets, and update you of the status with a handy display in the dash. The Hyundai TPMS is designed for convenience, indicating which tire is getting low, and how much air is needed to get things back up to snuff. If a tire indicator is flashing red on your screen, it’s in need of immediate attention.

If your TPMS Hyundai system is still indicating that your tires need attention after you’ve inflated each one to the proper psi, you may need a Hyundai TPMS reset. Even if you’re familiar with taking on DIY projects in your Mountain View garage, we recommend visiting us in San Jose to let one of our service pros conduct your Hyundai TPMS reset.

Tire Pressure Tips

Navigating through San Jose while your tires are running low on air can lead to excessive wear and tear. This is caused by added friction between the road and your tires. Deflated tires can be hazardous and can lead to unnecessary repairs if left unattended for too long. Keep the following in mind during your travels:

  • Check the status of your tire pressure at least once a week. You can do this by checking out the TPMS Hyundai display on your instrument cluster.
  • Depending on driving conditions, tires can naturally lose 1-2 psi per month, so don’t be alarmed if you notice a slight dip in tire pressure.
  • Exterior temperatures can cause fluctuations in tire pressure, this is especially true when traveling through extreme cold.
  • If a particular tire constantly needs air, there may be a leak or a small hole. This can be a quick fix if caught early.
