Hyundai Genesis: Tires/Wheels / Tire Repair procedures

Tires and wheel other than those of the recommended sizes may cause unusual handling and poor vehicle control, resulting in a serious accident.
Tire Wear
Measure the tread depth of the tires.

Tread depth [limit] : 1.6 mm (0.0630 in.)

If the remaining tread depth (A) is less than the limit, replace the tire.
When the tread depth of the tires is less than 1.6 mm(0.063 in), the wear indicators (B) will appear.

Remove valve core and deflate the tire.
Remove the bead area in the side of the tire from the wheel using the tire changing machine.

The tire bead should be broken approx. 90° from the valve side of the wheel. The bead breaker should not be set too deep.
Avoid tire/tool contact with the valve on dismount.
Dismount should end near the valve.
Rotate the wheel clockwise.

Apply tire soap or lubrication to the top and bottom tire beads.

To fit the bottom bead, position the valve at the 5 o’clock position relative to the head on the tire changing machine.

Place the tire on the rim so the bottom bead touches the edge of the rim after the valve (6 o’clock). Rotate the rim clockwise, and push down on the tire at the 3 o’clock position to fit bottom bead.

After bottom bead is on tire, rotate the rim until the valve is at the 5 o’clock position relative to the head on the tire changing machine. Push down on the tire at the 3 o’clock position and rotate the rim clockwise to fit the top bead.

Inflate the tire until both beads are completely seated.
