  4. Tyre pressures without runflats

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    A potentially boring question . For those of you that don’t bother with runflats do you still use the same pressures that are recommended for the car ? I’m finding that I’m getting pretty uneven wear and the last two tyres on the back went bald in the middle which is caused by over inflation but...

  9. Non Run Flats and Tyre Pressures

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    Hello All, Recenly got rid of my run fat tyres, the car feels softer through the corners, I wonder is this due to the fact that the tyres are not rock hard like run flats or am I under inflating them? The book says to have 2.2 bar front (32 psi) and 2.3 (34 psi) rear. Should I stick with this...

    Hello all, Wonder if you can help. I was driving my E46 M3 yesterday and the steering felt weird and pulled over to one side - I knew immediately it was a flat tyre - cars when I was growing up had no sensors so you just had to get used to the feel of the car. Anyway, I was correct the drivers...
