Hyundai Sonata Tire Pressure

Driver checking air pressure and filling air in the tires of car

Do you know the recommended Hyundai Sonata tire pressure to maximize your car’s performance? Hyundai recommends a cold tire pressure level of 34 psi on all four wheels. Keeping your tires properly inflated can have a huge impact on your vehicle’s handling and fuel economy – not to mention the added bonus of avoiding pesky flat tires! Find out more about Hyundai Sonata tire pressure at Planet Hyundai near Denver to be better prepared on the roads.

Optimal Tire Pressure

The right air pressure will keep the strain off your engine, suspension, axles, and more, so it’s worth the small time investment to check your tires regularly. On all four Hyundai Sonata wheels there should be a cold tire pressure level of 34 psi. Be sure to also check the compact spare tire in the back, which should have a reading of 60 psi.

Overinflation and Underinflation

What will happen if you overinflate or underinflate your tires significantly? Overinflation puts excess strain on the tire, putting you at risk of tire failure and blowout on Lakewood and Arvada roads. This can also negatively affect your traction, which can be a huge problem during those harsh winters in Colorado. Underinflation causes its own set of problems, including heat buildup and tread separation that can cause dangerous incidents on the roads. These issues are even more severe in hot weather and with high-speed driving.
