How to Check Tire Pressure

Manhattan BMW drivers love their car and understand the importance of routine maintenance. Not only will properly filling your BMW tires help the overall health of the car, it also helps improve fuel efficiency. According to the Department of Energy, proper tire air pressure can help improve efficiency by as much as 3.3%. Newer model BMWs include a tire pressure monitoring system to alert if there are issues with the tire, but pressure can also be verified with a seperate tire pressure gauge. Remember to ensure the BMW spare tire is in proper shape as well.


Checking tire pressure is best performed when the tires are cold or haven’t been driven on recently. Follow these quick steps to checking BMW tire pressure.


  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

Be sure to fill BMW tires to the model recommended pressure. If the tire pressure gauge exceeds the recommended PSI, air can be let out by pressing down on the center plunger in the valve stem until it reaches the proper pressure.


Tire Care Tips

  • Routinely perform a visual inspection of the tires. Replace them if any worn down tread or cracking sidewalls are observed.
  • Notice the tires have to be filled more frequently? This could indicate a slow leak that should be patched or repaired.
  • Round out proper tire maintenance with other routine tasks. Keep up with tire rotations and wheel alignments to ensure all parts of the wheel system are working together smoothly. Check the owner’s manual for recommended service schedules.


Take the worry away and stop into the service center near Queens to check your BMW tire pressure or get your tires aligned or rotated.
