Staying on top of BMW tire maintenance is key if you want to get the most out of your tires for as long as possible. Tires are an often overlooked safety component of a vehicle, but they are crucial for safe handling, especially when you encounter challenging terrain or inclement weather around Portland and Tigard. In this guide, we show you how to check BMW tire tread, how to inspect your tires, and more. Let’s get started. 

Monthly Tire inspections 

In just ten minutes a month, you can be sure your tires are ready to hit the roads of Lake Oswego and beyond. These monthly inspections can help you catch small problems before they turn into bigger issues with bigger repair bills. 

Even if your vehicle is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, we still recommend checking your tire pressure manually. Try to wait a few hours after you last drove the vehicle before you attempt to get a reading. Do your tires need air? If so, gradually add air until they reach the proper level. 

Next, inspect your tires for signs of wear. This could include gashes, embedded objects, or uneven wear patterns. If you notice uneven wear patterns, it could be a warning sign of overinflated tires, misaligned wheels, or suspension issues. 

How to Check BMW Tire Tread

If you are not sure how to check BMW tire tread, don’t worry. All you need is a penny. 

  • Place your penny into a tread groove upside down. 
  • Look at the part of the penny that is showing. Is the top of Lincoln’s head visible? If so, your tires do not have a safe level of tread depth and they should be replaced as soon as possible. 
  • Repeat the penny test on all tires and in several locations on each tire.

BMW Tire PSI Guide

The recommended BMW tire pressure is around 32 PSI for most models. However, the model you have and its tires will determine the recommended PSI. This is why we always recommend looking at your owner’s manual. This info may also be found on the sticker located on the inside edge of your driver’s door.
