Default Tucson Tire Rotation

I have the 2012 AWS Limited. Almost 4K miles and considering tire rotation. do I need to be concerned about tpms? I want to have the tire rotation done at pep boys instead of dealer. will they charge extra just because it has tpms? will I start getting warning lights after the tire rotation?

No problems..........go ahead and get them rotated.
As long as the TPMS system can still read all 4 wheels it doesn't care which location they are mounted.

It doesn't affect the amount of work for rotating tires so they should not charge any different than a normal rotation, if they are, they are ripping you off.

Default ...My (OCD) TIRE ROTATION...

The PEP Boys can rotate the tires for you, front to rear.

After my Sunday car wash, I jacked up the driver's side and performed a front to rear (and rear to front) rotation. I have 6,650 miles on the tires that show no signs of wear. The candy side of the wheels can be cleaned with a car wash, but the backside of these wheels can only be cleaned when they are removed from the car. So, in my garage, with cold brewski, I took my time and did what the PEP Boys are too Lazy to do.

1. Remove all embedded materials from each tire tread.
2. Wash wheels. Wheel cleaning spray and brush everywhere on inside.
3. Wax wheels inside and out to keep brake dust from collecting.
4. Apply a 'tire shine' product to the inside tire walls.
5. Mount wheel, apply slight, white lithium grease to lug threads.
6. Apply a 'tire shine' product to the outside tire walls.
7. Inflate all tires to 33 lbs. Check that the spare tire has 60 lbs.

I made the PEP Boys look like Lazy Boys.

Brake dust is sticky and will cling to your wheels.
This is the 3rd coat of wax on these wheels.
The car's body was waxed 5 times so far. Looks good right?

Default ....Fitment is perfect on Tucson...

Best bolt-on exhaust tip that I have seen. It will not fall off, I have lost a few on the streets.
Yes, it is from E-bay.
This is the $34 version, now there is a $28 version with the same 'allen bolt and nut' attachment.

It brings the exhaust to the end of the car, yet does not stick out beyond the bumper.

It has a screen in it, and a drain hole for condensation from inside the pipe.

It is easy to wash and wax. Yes, get one.
Note: If you climb a steep hill, this will scrape the ground first.
Adding this tip will decrease the 'climb angle', picture a flat bed winching a Tucson backwards onto the bed.

Back on topic...... What is the torque for our lug nuts?
The dealer uses air tools to secure the lug nuts.
Do they check the torque? Is that air gun set to a specific torque?

2Son-Hawk: very nice job on your wheels! I do it every year to my 3 cars, though more oomph req'd for the X and Vette due to wheel/tire size and weight.

Wheel lug torque: good question. Roaming around the web I find 65-79 ft lbs for steel wheel, (17"), and 79-98 ft lbs for 'alloy'/18" wheel. But that alloy listing is not from an official H doc. And, pretty broad range; I am used to seeing a very specific ft lb number for my other cars. I used 90 when I did the CEO's Tuck, and then re-torqued a weekish later.

Dealers, most tire joints, the local lift and drain, all use air tools and most don't use the 'limiter' setting in my experience. Check torque? Lmao! Add in the sideways insertion of the impact wrench gun, and one gets gouges around the nut hole...but, I am not quite as OCD about the wife's Tuck as I could be.

Well done show & tell pics!
GL, mD

The general consensus seems to be to rotate tires every 5 - 6,000 miles. Plus, I seem to remember the recommended lug nut torque to be 65ft lbs, I may have read it on, or near the spare tire, or in the owners manual, I'm not sure where? but, this was also the recommended torque rating of my previous 2005 Tucson LX AWD, & 2002 Santa Fe LX 4WD.

Doesn't matter. Rotation only prolongs the tire life, so rotating in regular intervals is all that's needed. Some folks like every 5,000. Some folks like every 7,500 or even 10,000. A tread depth gauge is your best friend, and you just need to "even out" the wear via rotations.

My dad never rotates. He just buys new tires when they wear out. To each his own.

Myself, I rotate whenever I switch to the winter or summer tires. When I pull the old set off, I mark them with the new positions. When they go back on, the correct positions are staring me in the face.

Also remember to retorque your lugs after 100-150 miles.
