Many car owners underestimate the importance of proper tire pressure. Drivers also place more emphasis on underinflated tires as they do overinflated tires. Properly inflated tires impact how well a car drives and how long tires last.

First, you should always look for the correct PSI on the manufacturer's label located on the driver's side doorjamb. There you will find exactly how much air you need to put in your tires. Next, it is just as important to not overinflate your tires as it is to not drive a car with underinflated tires. Tires with too much air have less grip, and that can have a detrimental impact on your car's suspension. Overinflated tires also wear out the tread on your tires faster.

If you are unsure about how much air you should put in your tires or how often you should inspect them, schedule an appointment with one of our technicians at BMW of Des Moines.
