Ensuring that your vehicle and its components are performing at its best is important. While checking the engine, the oil, and the transmission are important, you also need to check your tires. Your tires are one of the most important components to your vehicle, and any issues with them will be noticeable during your trips around the St. Charles, St. Louis, and O'Fallon area.

To help you understand more about your tires, we're going to go over the right tire pressure, what happens when your pressure is off, and the right tire pressure for your Hyundai. By reading our guide, you'll see the importance of having the right tire pressure.

Hyundai Tire Pressure By Model

There's nothing better than driving around on tires that have the perfect amount of pressure in them. You'll notice this by how well your vehicle handles on the road. When you have the appropriate PSI (pounds per square inch), not only will your tires have better traction, they'll also help you get the most out of your fuel.

It's important to note that temperature can have a huge effect on your tires. Colder weather can actually lower the pressure of your tires because the warm air inside your tires will contract. This is why you should keep an eye on your tire pressure when the seasons change. Here's a list of the recommended Hyundai tire pressure by model:

  • Hyundai Accent Tire Pressure: 33 PSI 
  • Hyundai Elantra Tire Pressure: 33 PSI
  • Hyundai Kona Tire Pressure: 33 PSI 
  • Hyundai Palisade Tire Pressure: 35 PSI 
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Tire Pressure: 33 PSI 
  • Hyundai Sonata Tire Pressure: 34 PSI 
  • Hyundai Tucson Tire Pressure: 35 PSI 
  • Hyundai Veloster Tire Pressure: 33 PSI 
  • Hyundai Venue Tire Pressure: 33 PSI

What Happens When Your Tire Pressure is off?

It's always important to make sure that your tire pressure is at the appropriate level. If it isn't, there are a variety of situations that can occur when driving on under or overinflated tires. If your tire pressure is low, then too much of your tire touches the ground. This could cause your tires to overheat and wear down earlier than usual. Over time, your tread will separate, making it increasingly difficult for your tires to properly grip the road.

High tire pressure isn't good either. When your tires are overinflated, not enough of your tire touches the ground. This can result in bouncing and rough driving, even on smooth terrain. After a while, this will have a negative effect on your traction, and even your braking.

The Right Tire Pressure For Your Hyundai

Most Hyundai models range in tire pressure from 33 PSI to 35 PSI. Your best bet is to check your owner's manual to ensure that your tires are at the right pressure. Luckily, each Hyundai is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. This feature will notify you when your tires are underinflated, so you can take the measures to get your tires back to the right pressure so you can enjoy a smooth and efficient ride.
