Hyundai Genesis Recommended Tire Pressure

Check Hyundai Genesis tire pressure charts with recommended tire inflation pressures for Hyundai Genesis tires to improve fuel efficiency, extend tire life and drive safely. Select your Hyundai Genesis year.

It is vital to maintain proper tire inflation pressures for Hyundai Genesis tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation while high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can reduce fuel efficiency, lead to uneven tire tread wear and decrease tire life, compromise tire safety and cause tire blowout. Check Hyundai Genesis tire pressure regularly, and monitor Hyundai Genesis tire inflation pressures to avoid driving with overinflated or underinflated tires.

Tire inflation listed on tire sidewall is the maximum air pressure the tire can hold to carry its maximum load, and not the recommended tire pressure for Hyundai Genesis. Use Hyundai Genesis recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in Hyundai Genesis owner's manual, on a tire placard on driver's door or door jam, inner trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended tire pressure for your Hyundai Genesis tire sizes will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your Hyundai Genesis may have different recommended tire inflation pressures for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your Hyundai Genesis tires inflated at recommended tire inflation pressures at all times for your driving comfort and safety.

If you replace Hyundai Genesis original equipment tires or switch to plus size tires, make sure to follow guidelines for the application of load and inflation tables to find proper tire pressure for your new Hyundai Genesis tires. Hyundai Genesis tires with the same load index, regardless of tire size, may carry the same load, but may require substantially different inflation pressures. Tire load index may not be used independently to determine replacement tire acceptability for load capacity. An equal or greater load index does not always correspond to equal or greater load capacity at all inflation pressure settings. Hyundai Genesis replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your Hyundai Genesis speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the Hyundai Genesis owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your Hyundai Genesis replacement tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, your vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires. Original equipment tires that come on your Hyundai Genesis will have the proper tire load index, so use same or higher load index when choosing replacement tires. Tire load index tells you how much weight your tire can carry. Putting too much weight on your tires will overload them, and can cause premature tire wear, tire damage or even tire blowout. Refer to your Hyundai Genesis manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and load ratings. Always refer to the Hyundai Genesis owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of Hyundai Genesis replacement tires.

Hyundai Genesis tire pressure may fluctuate with ambient temperatures, so check Hyundai Genesis tire pressure when ambient temperatures change. In winter when temperatures drop, Hyundai Genesis tires may deflate by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degree Fahrenheit decrease in temperature. Maintain proper Hyundai Genesis winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.

Hyundai Genesis tire pressure should be checked when tires are cold, after your vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours. It is best to check your tire inflation pressure in the morning, after the vehicle has been parked overnight, using a reliable tire pressure gauge.

If your Hyundai Genesis is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on.
