  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I have a 2007 BMW 328i. The tire pressure sensor came on and off for about three days and then stayed on for a while so I wanted to do something about it. All my tires were at the correct psi so I went ahead and tried resetting the tire pressure sensor light. While it solved that problem, now...

    Hey, On my old RWD E46 I used to run 32 PSI front, 38 rear and I really liked the handling with that on summers. On my new AWD M240i XDrive, the tire pressures seem to be about even all around and I don't like the handling as much. Would it be safe/desirable to use lower pressure up front to...

  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Our F31 (2016 328iX Sports Wagon) gave us a warning on the display that tire pressure was low. Tire pressure was 31.5 psi front tires and 33 psi rear tires. This is the first time we have had a warning like this. The car's tire pressure monitor does not actually measure tire pressure. It...
  6. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I had my 2013 F30 328I serviced a couple of weeks ago at an official dealer in the San Francisco Bay Area - I bought it from them as a CPO vehicle a few months ago. I believe these tires are the standard run-flat default tires and were replaced out (with new ones) in the CPO process. I just...
  7. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I am still pretty new to this forum, and maybe my search abilities are lacking, but I couldn't seem to find this info anywhere, although I've thrown out the question twice in tire threads. I switched from OEM RFs to Conti DWS 225/50/16 on my 03 2.5i...ran the RF's at the recommended 30frt...
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Can anyone provide a technical description (or link) of the TPMS components and full system? I'm interested in knowing how the car (or PC) monitors the sensors inside the wheels. Where is the receiver?
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I got the 30k service performed on my 2012 E91 earlier today and the service advisor told me he had put all tires at 38psi for better handling... Recommended pressure is 33 in front and 41 in the back - The car feels a bit noisier and I did skid a bit getting out of my neighborhood in a spot...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I just purchased a 2011 335i convertible, and after it sat in my garage overnight, the tire pressures are 37 & 37 front, and 41 & 41 rear. The sticker on the door frame says they should be 33 front and 41 rear. (The tires are all ContiProContact SSR 225/45R17 91H M+S which I assume are the...

    I've been searching the internet and threads for a solution to my problem. Some threads were years back so I was hoping for more active member feedback. My 94' 325is was debadged when I got it thus no door panel info on tire pressure. I also have after market tires purchased from Tirerack...

  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I turn on my car in 38 degree weather for the first time and I got a warming sign . I check the manual and the warning sign indicates if you have a flat tire or loss of pressure . Luckily it was just a lost of pressure in the tires. I'm wondering if I just reset it in the idrive knowing that...

    Based on a suggestion RDL made over here: - DIY Glovebox & Bentley supplement: 1-page summary of the dozen recommended E39 fluids And coupled with the trunk emergency kit recommended items over here: - E39 trunk tool kit contents (cn90) (3-series) It would be nice to have suggestions for what...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Should I follow the sticker on the door? My winter tires are different sizes than my summer. I have a 2006 330i/Sports Package and the staggered tire setup. My winter tires are Blizzak (not the run-flats) 215/50R17. I was thinking of just inflating to 32 front 35 rear. That is lower than the...

    http://www.bimmerfest.com/images/2011/BMW-335i-Snow-Tires.jpg Let***8217;s face it; most people in today***8217;s economy do not have the extra money to have a separate car for the winter months. That means that it is even more important that you have the proper tools on hand to make your BMW...
  17. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I have seen similar problems in relation to what i am having but nothing quite exact. I hope someone has some valuable information to assist me. I have a 2007 BMW X3. Last night while hardwiring my radar detector this problem began. I dont think/doubt me wiring the detector caused this but...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I changed the bridgestone protenza run flats (a nightmare) on my 335i sport coupe to Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus. These tires are great and no problems with them other than the pesky tire warning light (red) in the dash. I reset it using the little paddle next to the steering wheel on the left...
  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Changed my oil, oil filter, and air filter today. After driving about 5 miles, I got a TPMS Warning. I pulled over, and checked all my tire pressures. My driver's side rear tire was at 30psi when the other one was at 35. I filled it up, then re-did the initialize tire pressure thing. I keep...
