If you are not towing a trailer, keep tires
inﬂated to the pressures shown on the Tire
and Loading Information label, even if itdiﬀers
from the pressure printed on the tire itself. The
Tire and Loading Information label is located
on the center door pillar and is visible when
the driver’s door is open.
Remove the valve cap.
Firmly press an accurate tire pressure
gauge onto the valve to measure pressure.

Recheck the pressure with the tire gauge
and adjust if necessary.
Replace the valve cap to prevent dirt from

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, which causes unexpected loss of
vehicle control and increased risk of
injury.Under-inﬂation also reduces
Battery range and tire tread life.
Warning: Check tire pressures using an
accurate pressure gauge when tires are
cold. It takes only about 1.6 kms of driving
to warm up the tiressuﬃciently toaﬀect
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 tireinﬂation pressure
The Tire Pressure indicator light on
the instrument panel alerts you if
one or more tires is under- orover-
The Tire Pressure indicator light does not
immediately turnoﬀ when you adjust tire
pressure. Afterinﬂating the tire to the
recommended pressure, you must drive over
km/h for more than 10 minutes to activate
the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS),
which turnsoﬀ the Tire Pressure indicator
Warning: Do not use any tire sealant
other than the type provided in a Tesla
tire repair kit. Other types can cause tire
pressure sensors to malfunction. If your
Model X did not include a tire repair kit,
you can purchase one from Tesla.
If the indicator lightﬂashes for one minute
whenever you power on Model X, a fault with
the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is
detected (see TPMS Malfunction on page
