BMW Center Caps & TPMS

Hi all,

I just put some alufelgen cs7 19 with hankook ventus v12s on my 335i and when my tire shop tried to put my stock center caps on them they went it but didn't click in, so they would definitely fall out over time. Is there a trick to making them fit or do I need to buy a different type of center cap. Also, my TPMS is flashing telling me to set tire pressure and reset. What is the best pressure to set them at and how exactly do I go about doing this. Thanks for your help!

TPMS reset is in the manual. If you have iDrive, go to settings >TPMS reset click on it and drive away. keep driving 'till the warning turns off. It may take up to a few minutes.

I have my non-R/F set at 35/37 but it will vary from tire to tire and your own ride/handling preference.

Are you sure the OEM BMW cap is the right size for the new wheel?

Stock BMW center cap should fit perfectly in AluFelgen CS7.

I was running my Ventus v12s at 35/37 with a staggered set up. I have a square winter wheels/tires set up running at 35. Any more pressure and my wife won't ride in the car with me
