Tire Pressures

Displaying Tire Pressures

Tire pressures display on the touchscreen by touching Controls > Service, or use the mobile app. The pressure of each tire displays in the visualization of Cybertruck, in addition to the time the tire pressures were last read by the system.

The touchscreen also displays your vehicle's recommended cold tire pressures so you can easily determine how much to inflate your tires.

To choose whether to display tire pressures using Bar or PSI, touch Controls > Display > Tire Pressure.

You may need to drive briefly before the visualization displays the tire pressure values.

Maintaining Tire Pressures

Label on center door pillar
Keep tires inflated to the recommended pressures, even if it differs from the pressure printed on the tire itself. The Tire and Loading Information label on the center door pillar is visible when the driver door is open and represents a nominal driving scenario in which the vehicle is carrying cargo in the front trunk and up to five passengers. When carrying heavy loads, up to the vehicle's GVWR, in a Cybertruck equipped with All Terrain tires, the tire pressures should be increased.
Tires (Front and Rear)Normal Load*GVWR**
20" All Season50 psi50 psi

20" All Terrain

50 psi65 psi

*Normal Load assumes a fully loaded front trunk and up to five occupants (see Calculating Load Limits).
**GVWR load capacity not exceeding the vehicle's Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (see Weights - Vehicle).

CAUTION
If you are towing a trailer, do not use the tire pressures printed on the Tire and Loading Information Label. Instead, refer to the tire pressures published (see Tire Pressures when Towing).

The Low Tire Pressure indicator light on the touchscreen alerts you if a tire is under-inflated. This light does not immediately turn off when you adjust tire pressure. After inflating the tire to the recommended pressure, you must drive over 15 mph (25 km/h) for a short amount of time to activate the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which turns off the Low Tire Pressure indicator light.

If the indicator light flashes for one minute whenever you power on Cybertruck, a fault with the TPMS is detected.

Your vehicle’s tire pressures will drop in cold ambient temperatures. If the TPMS indicator light appears, inflate the tires before driving. The tires will lose approximately one PSI for every 10° F (6° C) drop in outside temperature. Proper tire pressures help protect tires from potholes and improve range and tire longevity when properly inflated.

Warning
The Low Tire Pressure indicator light alerts you only in situations when a tire is below the recommended threshold (as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label) under normal driving conditions. It does not alert you when a tire is under-inflated based on the load you are carrying.

Warning
Under-inflation is the most common cause of tire failures and can cause a tire to overheat, resulting in severe tire cracking, tread separation, or blowout. This may lead to unexpected loss of vehicle control and increased risk of injury. Under-inflation also reduces the vehicle's range and tire tread life.

Checking and Adjusting Tire Pressures

Warning IconA warning icon, calling your attention to a possibly risky situation
Warning
Check tire pressures using an accurate pressure gauge when tires are cold. It takes only about one mile (1.6 km) of driving to warm up the tires sufficiently to affect tire pressures. Parking the vehicle in direct sunlight or in hot weather can also affect tire pressures. If you must check warm tires, expect increased pressures. Do not let air out of warm tires in an attempt to match recommended cold tire pressures. A hot tire at or below the recommended cold tire inflation pressure is dangerously under-inflated.

Follow these steps when tires are cold and Cybertruck has been stationary for over three hours:

  1. Refer to the Tire and Loading Information label located on the driver’s center door pillar for the target tire pressure.
  2. Remove the wheel cover (see Removing and Installing Wheel Covers).
  3. Remove the valve cap.
  4. Firmly press an accurate tire pressure gauge onto the valve to measure pressure.

    You can also view tire pressures on the touchscreen.
  5. If required, add or remove air to reach the recommended pressure.

    Note
    You can release air by pressing the metal stem in the center of the valve.
  6. Re-check pressure using the accurate tire gauge.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 as necessary until the tire pressure is correct.
  8. Reinstall the valve cap to prevent dirt from entering. Periodically check the valve for damage and leaks.
  9. Reinstall the wheel cover.

Tire Pressure Monitoring

Each tire should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the recommended pressures (see Maintaining Tire Pressures). If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.

When the Tire Pressure indicator light displays on the touchscreen to alert you about tire pressure, stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure (see Maintaining Tire Pressures). Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces range efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Warning
The TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, including manually checking tire pressures and regularly inspecting the condition of tires. It is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level for the TPMS to trigger the Tire Pressure indicator light on the touchscreen.
