How to check Tesla Model 3 tire pressure?

To check Tesla Model 3 tire pressure you will first need to determine its recommended tire pressure for the front and rear tires. Take off tire valve caps and use a tire pressure gauge to check tire inflation in every tire. Adjust Tesla Model 3 tire pressure to its recommended levels. If overinflated, let some air out by pressing down the center plunger in the valve stem. If underinflated, add air with tire inflator. Recheck tire pressure to make sure all tires are properly inflated. Replace the valve stem caps. Make sure to check tire pressure when tires are "cold" and have not been driven for at least 3 hours. Remember that the front and rear tire pressures may differ.

What is proper tire pressure for Tesla Model 3 replacement tires?

If you replace Tesla Model 3 original equipment tires with non-stock tires that have different size or load capacity, new tires may require substantially different inflation pressures. Use our Replacement Tire Pressure Calculator to find proper tire inflation when switching to a different tire size.

What is optimal winter tire pressure for Tesla Model 3?

Tire pressure fluctuates with ambient temperatures. When temperatures drop, Tesla Model 3 tires may lose approximately 1 psi of air pressure for every 10 degree Fahrenheit decrease. During winter Tesla Model 3 tires can be inflated 3 to 5 psi above the recommended tire pressure settings to compensate for lower temperatures. Do not overinflate above the maximum tire inflation pressure value indicated on tire sidewall. Make sure to check tire pressure regularly in the winter to keep tires properly inflated for a safe ride on snow and icy roads.

Is my Tesla Model 3 equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)?
