Recommended tire pressure for BMW i8
It is vital to maintain proper tire pressure for BMW i8 tires. Low tire pressure will result in tire underinflation while high tire pressure will result in tire overinflation, which can decrease fuel efficiency, lead to uneven tire tread wear and reduce tire life, compromise tire safety and cause tire blowout. Check BMW i8 tire pressure regularly, and monitor BMW i8 tire inflation levels to avoid driving with overinflated or underinflated tires.
Tire inflation value listed on tire sidewall is the maximum air pressure the tire can hold to carry its maximum load, and not the recommended tire pressure for BMW i8. Use BMW i8 recommended tire pressure settings listed on the tire pressure chart found in BMW i8 owner's manual, on a sticker on driver's door or door jam, inner trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended tire pressure for your BMW i8 tires will be listed in one of the following pressure units: psi (pounds per square inch), bar or kPa (kiloPascals). Pay attention as your BMW i8 may have different recommended tire pressure values for front and rear tires, especially if equipped with staggered tires. Keep your BMW i8 tires inflated at recommended tire pressure levels at all times for your driving comfort and safety.
If you replace BMW i8 original equipment tires or switch to plus size tires, make sure to follow guidelines for the application of load and inflation tables to find proper tire pressure for your new BMW i8 tires. BMW i8 tires with the same load index, regardless of tire size, may carry the same load, but may require substantially different inflation pressures. Tire load index may not be used independently to determine replacement tire acceptability for load capacity. An equal or greater load index does not always correspond to equal or greater load capacity at all inflation pressure settings.
Always refer to the BMW i8 owner’s manual for any specific safety advice regarding the application of BMW i8 replacement tires.
BMW i8 replacement tires must have equal or greater speed rating compared to the original equipment tires if your BMW i8 speed capability is to be maintained. It is recommended that tire installers refer to the BMW i8 owner’s manual to identify any tire speed rating restriction or recommendation that could affect the operation of the vehicle. If your BMW i8 replacement tires have a lower speed rating than the original equipment tires, your vehicle’s speed must be restricted to that of the replacement tires.
Original equipment tires that come on your BMW i8 will have the proper tire load index, so use same or higher load index when choosing replacement tires. Tire load index tells you how much weight your tire can carry. Putting too much weight on your tires will overload them, and can cause premature tire wear, tire damage or even tire blowout. Refer to your BMW i8 manual to find its original equipment tire sizes and load ratings.
BMW i8 tire pressure may fluctuate with ambient temperatures, so check BMW i8 tire pressure when ambient temperatures change. In winter when temperatures drop, BMW i8 tires may deflate by approximately 1 psi for each 10 degree Fahrenheit decrease in temperature. Maintain proper BMW i8 winter tire pressure by adding air to your tires as needed to the recommended tire inflation levels.
BMW i8 tire pressure should be checked when tires are cold, after your vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours. It is best to check your tire inflation pressure in the morning, after the vehicle has been parked overnight, using a reliable tire pressure gauge.
If your BMW i8 is equipped with tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), pay attention to low tire pressure warning light being on. Ensure BMW i8 tire pressure sensors are working properly to stay alert and enjoy a safe ride. If your tire pressure warning light is on, check front and rear tires to make sure they are properly inflated.
What is the recommended tire pressure for BMW i8?
Recommended tire pressure for BMW i8 is determined by the manufacturer based on your vehicle's characteristics and original equipment tire sizes. Select your BMW i8 year to get recommended tire inflation for BMW i8 tires.
How do I find recommended tire pressure settings for BMW i8? What is correct BMW i8 tire pressure?
You can find your BMW i8 recommended tire pressure in BMW i8 owner's manual, on a sticker on driver's door or door jam, inner trunk lid, in the console or on the fuel door. Recommended tire pressure for BMW i8 will be listed in psi, bar or kPa.
How to check BMW i8 tire pressure?
Proper BMW i8 tire inflation is essential to the overall tire performance and safety. To check tire pressure for BMW i8 you will need to know its recommended tire pressure and a tire pressure gauge. Check inflation pressures in BMW i8 tires with tire pressure gauge and adjust to BMW i8 recommended tire pressure levels as needed by adding or releasing air. Make sure to check tire inflation for your BMW i8 regularly to ensure safe and comfortable drive.
Why is BMW i8 tire pressure warning light on?
If your BMW i8 is equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) it will alert you when tire pressure is too low and your tires could be underinflated, which can lead to uneven tire wear or can cause tire failure. If BMW i8 low tire pressure warning light is on, check all BMW i8 tires for low tire pressure and inflate tires to the recommended tire pressure levels. Keep in mind that Tire Pressure Monitoring System does not replace routine tire pressure check and maintenance.
How to reset tire pressure warning light for BMW i8?
To reset tire pressure monitoring system for BMW i8, make sure front and rear tires are inflated to the recommended levels. Refer to your BMW i8 owner's manual on how to reset your tire pressure monitoring system.
What is recommended winter tire pressure for BMW i8?
Recommended tire pressure for BMW i8 is the same for any season, but you may inflate your BMW i8 tires 3 to 5 psi above the recommended tire pressure set by the manufacturer to compensate for lower temperatures during winter. Make sure to check your BMW i8 tire pressure more often in the winter to keep tires properly inflated for a safe ride on snow and icy roads.
