Lowest tire pressure

What is the lowest pressure I could use in my M3 tires, so as to drive both around the city / on the highway at high speeds?

>> 19" stock wheels and no run-flat tires

>> Tire pressure recomended by the factory is 39.7

Thank you.

Where did you get 39.7-thats not on the door. 35 all corners for non-autobahn speeds and non-load. Higher than that for a loaded car or sustianed 100 mph plus speeds.

Theres a black sticker on the drivers's door jam listing several pressure values. 39.7 is the recommended tire pressure for non-load and two people in the car.

Maybe its different in this country.

The tire pressure on the M3 is 33psi on front and 35psi on the rears. That is straight from the the door jam.
