Hyundai Accent: Wheel nut tightening torque - If you have a flat tire (with spare tire) - What to do in an emergency - Hyundai Accent 2010-2014 Owners ManualHyundai Accent: Wheel nut tightening torque

Steel wheel & aluminum alloy wheel:

65~79 lbft (9~11 kgm)

If you have a tire gauge, remove the valve cap and check the air pressure. If the pressure is lower than recommended, drive slowly to the nearest service station and inflate to the correct pressure. If it is too high, adjust it until it is correct. Always reinstall the valve cap after checking or adjusting tire pressure. If the cap is not replaced, air may leak from the tire. If you lose a valve cap, buy another and install it as soon as possible.

After you have changed wheels, always secure the flat tire in its place and return the jack and tools to their proper storage locations.

Your vehicle has metric threads on the wheel studs and nuts. Make certain CAUTION

Your vehicle has metric threads on the wheel studs and nuts. Make certain during wheel removal that the same nuts that were removed are reinstalled - or, if replaced, that nuts with metric threads and the same chamfer configuration are used. Installation of a non-metric thread nut on a metric stud or vice-versa will not secure the wheel to the hub properly and will damage the stud so that it must be replaced.

Note that most lug nuts do not have metric threads. Be sure to use extreme care in checking for thread style before installing aftermarket lug nuts or wheels. If in doubt, consult an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

If the studs are damaged, they may lose their ability to retain the wheel. WARNING - Wheel studs

If the studs are damaged, they may lose their ability to retain the wheel. This could lead to the loss of the wheel and a collision resulting in serious injuries.

To prevent the jack, jack handle, wheel lug nut wrench and spare tire from rattling while the vehicle is in motion, store them properly.

Check the inflation pressures as soon as possible after installing the WARNING - Inadequate spare tire pressure

Check the inflation pressures as soon as possible after installing the spare tire. Adjust it to the specified pressure, if necessary. Refer to Tires and wheels section 8.

Important - use of compact spare tire

If your vehicle is equipped with a compact spare tire, it will take up less space than a regular-size tire. This tire is smaller than a conventional tire and is designed for temporary use only.

CAUTION

  • You should drive carefully when the compact spare is in use. The compact spare should be replaced by the proper conventional tire and rim at the first opportunity.
  • The operation of this vehicle is not recommended with more than one compact spare tire in use at the same time.

The compact spare tire is for emergency use only. Do not operate your vehicle WARNING

The compact spare tire is for emergency use only. Do not operate your vehicle on this compact spare at speeds over 50 mph (80 km/h). The original tire should be repaired or replaced as soon as is possible to avoid failure of the spare possibly leading to personal injury or death.

The compact spare should be inflated to 60 psi (420 kPa).

Check the inflation pressure after installing the spare tire. Adjust it to NOTICE

Check the inflation pressure after installing the spare tire. Adjust it to the specified pressure, as necessary.

When using a compact spare tire, observe the following precautions:

  • Under no circumstances should you exceed 50 mph (80 km/h); a higher speed could damage the tire.
  • Ensure that you drive slowly enough for the road conditions to avoid all hazards.Any road hazard, such as a pothole or debris, could seriously damage the compact spare.
  • Any continuous road use of this tire could result in tire failure, loss of vehicle control, and possible personal injury.
  • Do not exceed the vehicles maximum load rating or the load-carrying capacity shown on the sidewall of the compact spare tire.
  • Avoid driving over obstacles. The compact spare tire diameter is smaller than the diameter of a conventional tire and reduces the ground clearance approximately 1 inch (25 mm), which could result in damage to the vehicle.
  • Do not take this vehicle through an automatic car wash while the compact spare tire is installed.
  • Do not use tire chains on the compact spare tire. Because of the smaller size, a tire chain will not fit properly. This could damage the vehicle and result in loss of the chain.
  • Do not use the compact spare tire on any other vehicle because this tire has been designed especially for your vehicle.
  • The compact spare tires tread life is shorter than a regular tire. Inspect your compact spare tire regularly and replace worn compact spare tires with the same size and design, mounted on the same wheel.
  • The compact spare tire should not be used on any other wheels, nor should standard tires, snow tires, wheel covers or trim rings be used with the compact spare wheel. If such use is attempted, damage to these items or other car components may occur.
  • Do not use more than one compact spare tire at a time.
  • Do not tow a trailer while the compact spare tire is installed.
