tire pressure
 
alrite i was looking at my door to find out the proper pressure and got tottaly confused, there were numbers and squares and triangles and i was *shiner*

what is the proper pressure for a 95 325i? my old car was 30psi

fletch 03-12-2006 07:00 PM

If 2 people in front 3 in rear --> (front tire)29psi/(rear tire)32psi

but my car only me and my gf so i use 29psi/29psi

Justin e36 03-12-2006 07:50 PM

out of the factory tire pressures for the 325i are:

front: 29 psi
rear: 32 psi

(as fletch said already.)

with 5 passengers + luggage, the specs (factory) are:

front: 32psi
rear: 39psi

if you are using the trailor hitch then increase the rear tires by 3psi.

note that changing your suspension, tire size, and vehicle weight can all affect the recommended PSI.

Also note that (bmw?) PSI numbers are given and recommended at 10 degree (celcius) weather (18`F). Tire PSI can fluctuate by +/- 4 PSI in extreme cold, or warm, temperatures. So adjust your PSI accordingly depending on the current weather conditions.
