Tires that are not properly inflated are unsafe to drive on. They also cause the engine to burn more fuel. Not only that, underinflated tires wear out faster.

Overinflated tires cause just as much trouble. When a tire has too much air it, it makes a bumpy road feel very rough. Overinflated tires exaggerate potholes and rutted roads.

You can test your tire pressure at home with a tire gauge. The best time to check the levels is when the tires are cold. The reading is not as accurate if the tires have been heating up on the road. The PSI (pounds per square inch) or pressure level is stamped on the driver’s door jam and in the owner’s manual.

When it is time for new tires, make an appointment with our service department at BMW Fresno conveniently located in Fresno, CA. Our service members will help you select the best tire for your driving conditions.
