I recently bought a 95 318 is with no owner's manual. I have not been able to find out the recommended tire pressure for the car anywhere. Does anybody know what the right tire pressure is? Also, I am thinking of replacing the Michelin MXV 4 Plus tires on the car now to Michelin Hydroedge as the MXV4s are terrible in the rain. Anyone have any comments/suggestions? Thank you.

check the door jamb on your drivers side...should tell you there. The tires should also have a "max tire pressure" recommendation on the side wall somewhere.

Be careful not to confuse these two numbers! The numbers on the door jamb are provided by the vehicle manufacturer which take vehicle specific factors into account. The max tire pressure on the sidewall of the tire is provided by the tire manufacturer based on tire specific factors. If you've chosen the correct class of tire for your vehicle then the numbers in the door jamb will fall within the numbers on the tire. Inflate your tires according to the door jamb.
