Tesla Model Y: Tire Pressures when Towing

When towing a trailer, tire pressures must be adjusted to accommodate the additional load. 19", 20", and 21" tires are acceptable to use for towing. Keep tires inflated to the pressures shown below (if different, these pressures override the pressures that are provided on the Tire and Loading Information Label.

Tire Pressures when Towing

CAUTION: Do not use Model Y for towing if equipped with tires that are not listed previously.

WARNING: Check tire pressures using an accurate pressure gauge when tires are cold. Driving one mile (1.6 km) warms 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.

WARNING: Never attempt to tow a trailer when a Model Y tire is faulty or has been inflated using a tire repair kit. A temporarily repaired tire is not designed to sustain the towing load. Towing using a faulty or temporarily repaired tire can result in tire failure and loss of vehicle stability.
