Insufficient tire pressure can cause tires to overheat and thus be damaged – even invisibly. Hidden tire damage is not eliminated by subsequently correcting the tire pressure.

The tire pressure plate B is attached to the B-pillar in the door sill area at the driver’s door.

The tire pressure must correspond to the prescribed value. Please refer to the plate on the driver's door sill (Fig. 231) and the Technical Data on page 366 for the tire pressure values. The values apply to cold tires (68 °F/20 °C).

  • Check the tire pressure of cold tires at least every 2 weeks.
  1. Please see chapter "Tire Pressure menu - Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)" on page 171.

Checking tire pressure with a pressure gauge

  1. Remove the valve stem cap from the tire.
  2. Press the pressure gauge onto the valve stem.
  3. Read the tire pressure on the gauge stem and compare it to the permissible tire pressure.
    This information can be found on the tire pressure plate or in the chapter Technical Data.
  4. Remove the pressure gauge.
