What are you guys running? What's it supposed to be (on a 540i)?

Car is riding like $hit in the past couple days and when i checked the pressure, it was all over the map. :mad:

BTW, I'm running 235/45/17 (Winter) Pirellis...

Well, every tire/rim combo is a little different. I have 235/35/19 and i fill them up to 40 all around for my reg driving. They were down all the way to 25 when i just took the car out of storage. :eek: Not sure what yours is "supposed" to be at. Maybe someone with the same combo can help.

Wait, i had 235/40/17 on my E36 and also had 40 in them.

mine went down to 28 in the front left, and 30 in the front right...
40 seems bit high, or no???
:confused:
I have them at 32 now and i'm not happy at all....guess I'll just keep going up and see what happens.... :cool:

Go by what is posted on the drivers side door pillar. On my 528i with max load it states 41psi rear, 36psi front. I usually run a few psi under that as my car is rarely loaded up.

Low to mid 30's would be more accurate.
