Tyre Pressures

Hi guys,

Just wondering what pressures you guys run front/rear.

Cheers

I don't own an M3 but a general rule with tyre pressures that i have found is to start at what the manufacturer recommends then increase/decrease 2psi at a time to find the tyre pressure/steering feel that you are happy with. I guess what i am trying to get across is that there are no hard and fast rules as to what pressure you should run for daily/street driving as long as you don't stray too far from what the factory recommends for your tyre/rim size.

I personally like a "heavier" steering feel so I run Front: 40psi (235/35/R19) and Rear:42psi (255/30/R19).

30 bar (44 lb) rear and 27 bar (39lb) front (nitrogen). Firm but good tyre wear.

Sure, just the same. It's the higher recommender pressure on the tyre placard. Rears on mine are a different size to stock (295x30x19) but I've always run the same pressure (air or nitrogen) and been happy with the results.
