    When are we going to get individual tire pressure readings for each tire? Majority of all cars have it! Tesla should have it instead of a simple warning.:frown: This should not even wait for V7.

    There is no date for this feature.

    Considering that incorrect tire pressure will impact range (and safety), there should be a target to introduce it.

    They have no plan to add this feature.

    that is a shame....is there a way to at least see that all tire pressures are sufficient? or do you have to get out of the car and manually check it? or does the car tell you when a tire is low?

    Get a FOBO. Easy to set up. App shows tire pressures and temperatures.

    Without spending more money (such as aftermarket options), you need to do it manually with a tire gauge on each tire. But you need to pay big bucks for a Tesla to have that privilege:mad:

    Got Torque? Try the following PIDs:

    222813: Driver Side Front Tire Pressure
    222814: Passenger Side Front Tire Pressure
    222815: Passenger Side Rear Tire Pressure
    222816: Drive Side Rear Tire Pressure
    Equation: ((256*A)+B)/3+22/3 in kPa (((256*A)+B)/3+22/3)*0.145 in PSI OBD Header: 726

    That's for a Ford, no idea if Tesla will use the same PIDs, but it's possible.

    All I am asking is simply display the pressure measurement from the TMPS of each tire on driver's display and/or touch screen.

    My car told me last week that my rear right tire was low. It doesn't give the pressure, but at least it tells you which tire. I checked all of them and they all were at 40lbs except for rear right. I hope that helps!

    My wife's Chevy Volt reads PSI for every tire..... Guess for the Model S I just bought, I'll have to go and buy a plastic pencil gauge and get on my knees......

    I've whined Tesla should have a diagnostic or system status screen for a long time ...

    TPMS, 12V status, Main battery, temps .... Might just save them some money on warranty costs.

    Yep, actual pressure read outs from inside the car is something even cheap cars do now. No reason for tesla to not offer it.

    It will help even more if Tesla give us a reading so that we can monitor any abnormal drop in pressure (for possible leaks) and take advance measure to correct the problem instead for waiting for the warning which may not be as convenient to fix. Is the 40lbs you have on your tires not too low? My service advisor inflate my tires to 45lbs.

    Also any idea at what pressure does the "low" warning come on?

    I felt the same way. I inflated them all to 45lbs. :)

    I am very glad I installed FOBO Plus on both of our Model S. Really nice to know pressures and temperatures. Interesting to see the wide swings with temperature. Nice to get warnings when readings are out of the parameters I set but not so low that it triggers the TM OEM TPMS. Can monitor both cars with 1 iPhone (FOBO Share).
