^yup

Its better u get the steering component checked first bcz the power steering fluid piping could be faulty

My previous car faced a similar problem.... it began with such vibrations until the power steering system totally died.... sucked to drive like that. Later found there was a leak and got it fixed

I gave me car to a garage and they dint find any problem with the suspenion and axle. There are no bents in the rims too..

I am really confuse now.. could it be tyre pressure thing ? can i raise the pressure to 38 psi and try? is it safe? as the car manual recommends 32 psi and tyre sidewall max psi is 44.

So we can eliminate rims, tires, suspension components as the cause. If your current pressure is 32 bump it to 36 for testing purposes and see if the issue surfaces.

Best take it to Hyundai dealer if you trust them.

Yes its fine as you don't exceed the sidewall specs. I doubt it's the PSI causing the problem.

p.s. Clint here.

Also have they checked your struts? I think it's a known issue on some Azeras.

Over loading air pressure gives you premature wear of tires from the center so it shortens the life time of your tire can even cause tire failure. Plus depends on load on the car . You go to max when you are fully loaded with people in your car. i.e load carrying capacity increases by increasing air pressure. Over inflating also will give you premature wear and tear of suspensions.
& some facts
For every 10*F change in ambient temperature, inflation pressure will change by approximately one p.s.i.
So now your cars tire, once it gets hot your pressure increases and as it cools down pressure decreases. You are already over the tire pressure limit , you could cause some serious damage to your tire n make it useless for you.
I would say just keep proper pressure in front and 1-2 psi less on the back cuz back has no weight comparing to front so you will wear center of your tire again.

I hope this helped ya
Cheers! (Y)

Tire pressure shouldn't cause vibrations.

2 psi sent away the vibrations? I mess with pressures all the time and that is weird.
