I was looking through the 00 owners manual and it said that the front tires should run 32 and the rear 41. that is if i read it right.


Is this correct?
Righth now im running about 32-33 all around.

I unsing 16" wheels now.

Would I change the pressure for 18" wheels?

I have 17inch wheels and run 32pounds..........M5 front and rear bars........runs perfect.Here in New zealand we have many beautiful windy roads and you really get the full benefit from the above setup.........I guess with straight freeway driving in traffic, you would never notice the difference.
All the best.

On mine with the stock 16" wheels I'm supposed to have 30psi front, 35psi back. I typically run it 1-2 psi higher than that in the summer.

I went with the tire pressure in the door plate.

33 front and 41 rear I think. Feels about the same.
Just curious about tire wear.

Should be ok though I guess BMW knows what its talking about.

Yes.........you would hope they know what they're talking about. As I said driving in a straight line really would'nt make a great deal of difference whether you were 36psi or 32pi..........


Chers.

Doesn't it depend how heavily the trunk is loaded, how many passengers, how "portly" said passengers are, and so on?

this is exactly the reason why i adjust my tire pressure everytime i get into the car or every 100 miles, whichever comes first. you can never be too careful.

I check my tire pressure when my car seems to be sitting on sidewalls.
