Checking tire pressure

Understanding the right tire pressure levels for your Hyundai is crucial. Maintaining proper tire pressure is critical for peak driving performance, towing capacity, and fuel economy, as well as ensuring you get the full life expectancy out of your tires. While every model is different, luckily Hyundai has made checking tire pressure easy for Laurel drivers.

Hyundai Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Your Hyundai vehicle is equipped with Hyundai TPMS, a tire pressure monitoring system that monitors the exact pressure in each tire. The second you start driving, your Hyundai will start measuring the tires’ levels, displaying their measurements on your dash within a few minutes. You will be alerted if any tire’s pressure is too low indicating which tire needs air and how much. When a tire needs assistance it will flash red.

If you have filled your tires to the proper level but your system is still alerting you to an issue, it’s possible a service professional may need to perform a Hyundai TPMS reset. Big Timber drivers can visit the experts at Underriner Hyundai for fast and friendly service.

Tire Pressure Tips

Tires with low pressure increases friction between the road and the tire, resulting in extra wear and tear on your wheels. This can lead to a potential repairs or even a future accident, so keep the following in mind as you drive:

  • Check your tire pressure on a regular basis, at least once a week. You can do this by viewing your TPMS Hyundai display on your instrument cluster.
  • Tires can naturally lose 1-2 psi per month due to driving habits.
  • Shifting outdoor temperature can cause fluctuations in tire pressure.
  • If you notice a tire needs air frequently, it’s possible there is a hole or nail somewhere causing a leak. This can be an easy repair when caught early.
