What is the BMW Recommended Tire Pressure?

Mechanic Removing Tire

To ensure optimal performance and safety on the Decatur roads, it is important that your vehicle is at the proper BMW tire pressure. The recommended tire pressure for most BMW tires is 32 PSI (pounds per square inch), but you should always make sure by checking the sticker on the inside edge of the driver’s door. Your owner’s manual should also have this information. Learn more about BMW tire care form the service experts at BMW of Bloomington.

How to Check Tire Pressure

In addition to making sure your BMW X5 or 3 Series is handling at its full potential on the roads in and around Normal, maintaining the correct BMW tire pressure should also help your vehicle run more efficiently. According to the Department of Energy, properly inflated tires could help improve fuel efficiency by as much as 3.3%.Most new BMW models come with a tire pressure monitor, so you will always be alerted if there is an issue with your tire air pressure. When checking tire air pressure, it is best to perform this task when the tires are cold, that is, not immediately after the car has been driven. Learn how to check tire pressure by following the steps below.

Mechanic Changing Tire
  1. Unscrew the valve stem cap
  2. Place a tire pressure gauge onto the valve stem and press it down firmly
  3. The tire pressure gauge will display the PSI
  4. Remove the gauge
  5. Replace the valve stem cap

If your tire gauge shows that your tire air pressure exceeds the recommended PSI, let some of the air out by pressing down the center plunger in the valve stem, and recheck. If you notice that your tire air pressure is too low, make sure to add enough air to bring it up to the recommended level.

If you prefer to leave this task to the professionals, you can bring your vehicle to the BMW of Bloomington service center near Decatur. We will be happy to check the tires on your car, as well as your BMW spare tire, to make sure they’re good to go.

Some Tire Care Basics

  • It is important to perform a visual inspection of your tires on a regular basis. If the tread is worn down, or if there is any cracking in the sidewalls, it is time for the tires to be replaced.
  • If you find that your tires are regularly losing air pressure, it could indicate a slow leak that should be addressed immediately.
  • In addition to ensuring the proper tire air pressure, it is also important to keep up with other tire maintenance tasks such as tire rotation and wheel alignment. Consult your BMW owner’s manual for the recommended service intervals.
