Recommended BMW Tire Pressure

Car tire

 

If you’ve noticed your BMW needs some extra air in its tires, then you may be wondering what the recommended BMW tire pressure is. The recommended tire pressure for most BMW models is 32 PSI (pounds per square inch). However, you should always check your owners manual for your specific vehicle’s tire pressure. The 32 PSI number is recommended for most passenger vehicles in Greensboro, but larger SUVs with different tires or drivetrains may have a different PSI. Learn more about BMW tire care and how to check your tire pressure with Athens BMW below, or schedule an appointment with our service center if you’re having any issues with your tires. 

Proper Tire Pressure is Important

Having the proper tire pressure is essential to your safety on Jefferson roads, and your vehicle’s performance. Properly inflated tires help reduce the risk of flat tires or blown out tires, extend the life of your tires by reducing wheel spin and excess friction, and improve fuel efficiency on your daily drives. Keeping your tires properly inflated is easy, and comes with many benefits. Learn how to check your tire pressure below to ensure your BMW is always performing at its best. 

How to Check Tire Pressure

Many BMW models come with a tire pressure monitoring system (the TPMS) on the dashboard to alert you if your tire pressure is low. However, you can also check the tire pressure yourself with a tire pressure gauge. This is an easy process, and doesn’t require a lot of time. Keep in mind, however, that you’ll get a more accurate reading if you check the pressure when the tires are cold – not immediately after the car has been driven. Simply follow the instructions below to check your BMW tire pressure:

  1. Unscrew the valve stem cap and put it somewhere safe.
  2. Place a tire gauge onto the valve stem and firmly press down.
  3. The gauge will display the PSI. If it’s right around the 32 mark, you are good.
  4. Remove the gauge.
  5. If you have more than the recommended PSI, let some of the air out by pressing down the center plunger in the valve stem, and recheck. 
  6. If the PSI is below what’s recommended, add enough air to bring it up to the recommended level. 
  7. Replace the valve stem cap.

You can fill your tires at home with a car tire pump or even with a bike pump if you’re in a pinch. You can also go to a Watkinsville gas station or service center. Don’t forget to check your BMW spare tire every 6 months to ensure it’s always got enough air in case of an emergency.

Tire Care Tips

Now that you know how to check your tire pressure, read our tire care tips so you can stay on top of your tire maintenance:

  1. Check your tire pressure every 30 days either with your TPMS system or with your tire pressure gauge to ensure your tires are always properly inflated.
  2. Inspect your tires on a regular basis for tread wear or cracks in the sidewalls. 
  3. If your tires are regularly losing air pressure, there could be a slow leak that should be addressed immediately.
  4. Keep up to date with the recommended tire rotation and wheel alignment schedule in your BMW owner’s manual maintenance schedule.
