With temps dropping, has anyone else noticed a "Low tire" warning on the app under "vehicle status" and "Alert" ? When it's around 30 some degrees. As the temp drops I get the warning every time. Right now it says Front Driver 32psi, passenger 31, driver rear 31, passenger rear 32. When the temps heat up the warning goes away. How do I know the correct tire pressure if it says it's low when it's cold and fine when it's not?

First thing you do is while the car is still cold is get air into the tires, between 36-38PSI COLD. That way it'll be at least 36-38 even cold. I have Continental Contri-Extremes on mine, 36 is what they suggest but some of the posters here go all the way to 38PSI.

Won't that cause them to be over inflated when it's warmer and there isn't loss due to the cold? Someone said it could be due to the rims. Is that what's causing the pressure loss or is it something that needs to be addressed? It goes in for its first oil change on Jan 17.

Not necessarily over inflated at all ... if the tires specify 36PSI that's their COLD SPEC not expanded. The dealer will rotate them and fill them to 36 during the oil change for sure. :)

That said, I’d still probably bleed them out. Even if it’s not bad for the tires, the ride quality gets really harsh when they get past 37 or so, at least in my opinion (but I also drive on shitty city streets that are far from any definition of “smooth”…so a little extra flex in the tires is appreciated 😂)

Do you have the OEM Continentals? When I drove her off of the lot, the pressure was in the 40's believe it or not. I was like ....hmmm that's a lot of feedback LOL. Keeping them at 36ish has worked out okay so far. I suspect we're going to get feedback from her regardless.
