Selecting tire type in the TPMS menu (type and size of fitted tire)

Exceeding maximum rated tire speed
Exceeding the maximum tire speed could result in a tire burst, causing loss of control of the vehicle.

  • Always observe the permissible maximum speed of the respective tire.
  • Porsche recommends obeying all traffic laws at all times to maintain the safety of yourself and all vehicle occupants.

Entering tire data and display
Incomplete entries or selection of the wrong tires on the multi-function display affect correct indication of warnings and messages.

  • The settings must be updated in the "TPMS" menu after changing a wheel, filling with tire sealant or adding air (after previous warning "Tire pressure!").
  • Please see the chapter "RED WARNING – TIRE PRESSURE!" on page 95.

The new tire type and tire size must be selected even if the settings for the new set of wheels are the same as for the old wheels.

Option is selected.
Option is not selected.

Tire selection has only been completed successfully when the following message appears on the multi-function display (example):

"No monitoring, System is learning".

  • Please see the chapter "CHANGING A WHEEL AND REPLACING TIRES" on page 96.

Before fitting tires with dimensions that are not already stored in the multi-function display, the missing information should be added to the multi-function display by your authorized Porsche dealer.

  • Please contact your authorized Porsche dealer.
  • Use only tires approved by Porsche.

The available items in the tire pressure menu depend on the model type. For this reason, some of the selection options shown here may not be available on your multi-function display.

System learning
Tire Pressure Monitoring System begins to "learn" the tires after a wheel change, wheel transmitter replacement or update of the tire settings. During this process, Tire Pressure Monitoring System recognizes the wheels and their locations.

The message "No monitoring, System is learning" appears on the multi-function display.

The wheel learning process takes place exclusively when the vehicle is being driven (vehicle speed above 16 mph (25 km/h)).

Tire Pressure Monitoring System requires a certain amount of time to learn the wheels. During this time, the current tire pressures are not available on the multi-function display:

  1. The tire pressure warning light remains lit until all wheels have been learned.
  2. Lines (-.-) appear on the display of the "TPMS" function.
  3. The required pressures for cold tires 68 °F (20 °C) are shown under "Fill info" in the "TPMS" main menu.

Position and pressure information is displayed as soon as Tire Pressure Monitoring System has assigned the wheels recognized as belonging to the vehicle to the correct wheel positions.

  • Check the tire pressure for all wheels under "Fill info".
  • Correct the tire pressure to the required pressure if necessary.

Tire pressure warnings
The tire pressure warning light on the instrument panel and a corresponding message on the multi-function display warn about loss of pressure in two stages (yellow and red), depending on the amount of pressure loss.
