tire pressure

how often do you guys check your tire pressure?
Ive been letting it slip, and i check yesterday, and im at 30psi. (should be 44psi).
thats the shitty thing about 44psi tires, they always look full.

Just carry a gauge in your glove box and make a habit of checking it! I check mine about once every 2 weeks. I'm just a cheap accountant who wants to save every penny in gas!

29F/32R. And I don't normally check them; I can actually feel it if they're off, thanks to the enormous amount of feedback I get from the roads around here

[QUOTE=jybute]how often do you guys check your tire pressure?

Fortunate for me, my 5th GEN E60 wheels is equipped with a mandatory on-board tire pressuring monitoring system, as part of the I-Drive FTM application for my 19' Bridgestone Potenza RFT's. The system monitors tire pressure continuously in real time on all fours and warns me immediately when any loss of pressure occurs on my 9" monitor in the dash. Pretty cool man.

Of course, with my RFT's I'm able to drive up to 60mph for 100 miles, even when the tires are completely deflated. A pretty nice safety feature to have, particularly at the dead of night or those heavy rainy days. Overall, ride quality isn't too bad for RFTs also. Peace of mind for sure.

35PSI normally and 40PSI on the track. I pretty much only check them when doing any maintnence that involves taking the tires off or when going to and from the track.

Sad to say... only about once a year. The dealer usually blows em for me. But, they hardly loose air. Go figure
