Tire Pressure

Okay lesson learned. After decades of checking tire pressure on delivery I let it slide with my new E93. Two months have gone by and decided to check tire pressure today. Three of the tires to spec (or w/in 1/2 a PSI). Left front tire was at 48 psi. WTF!

Have 1320 miles on the car. All of it under 80 mph. A couple of 200 miles road trips. PS sidewall says max pressure 56 psi. Anyone think I f'ed up the tire?

Thanks.

Nah, probably fine. Just lower the pressure and watch for sidewall bubbles in the future.

Nothing to be concerned about - this is not out of the range of normal. On on of my BMW's the stock pressure cold was 44 PSI, so the tires are fine with it.
