When Should Tires Be Replaced?


The two factors that suggest it’s time to replace tires on your Hyundai Elantra are time and mileage. On average, most drivers cover between 12,000 and 15,000 miles annually. Most drivers will pass the miles their original equipment tires were intended to cover well before they hit their age limit.

Once tires go beyond five years old, it’s a good time to consider replacing them. Tires are composed of many materials such as rubber, kevlar, and chemicals. All of these elements work together to resist UV rays, temperature changes and environmental hazards. After the five year period, these materials and chemicals begin to break down and become less effective.

Hyundai Elantra Tire FAQ


What are the best Elantra tires?

Because the Elantra is a purpose-built performance vehicle and economy car, depending on trim level, the best tires depend on your driving style. For example, a driver who often participates in track events will require a different tire than a driver who only plans on street driving. It's also important to consider what seasons, temperature, and weather you will be using the vehicle in.

How long do Elantra tires last?

Every tire has a UTQG rating that provides information regarding number of miles the tire is expected to last. However, this number is an estimate. How you drive your vehicle has a big impact on the life expectancy of a tire.

What is the best tire pressure?

There isn't a magic number as every vehicle and every tire requires a different tire pressure. The best way to know what tire pressure to use is to check the driver's side door for a label that shows you the recommended tire pressure for that specific vehicle. Take note that this recommendation changes depending on the load of passengers, as well as cargo load. The tire pressure on the tire itself is not a suggested, rather the maximum PSI a tire can take.

How often should you rotate your tires?

Rotating tires isn't only Camaro specific. The typical tire rotation interval is somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 miles. That said, specific cars and tires may change those numbers.
