MINI Cooper Tire Pressure

2022 MINI Cooper Countryman Wheel

The recommended tire pressure for a MINI Cooper is typically around 35 PSI, but you should consult your owner’s manual for specifics regarding your MINI Cooper model. It is important to routinely check your MINI Cooper tire pressure to ensure that you enjoy a smooth and safe ride on Providence, RI-area roads. Without the correct tire pressure, a MINI Cooper will suffer:

  • Accelerated tire tread wear
  • Low responsiveness / poor handling
  • Declining fuel economy

The above issues can occur whether the tire pressure is too low or too high, which is why maintaining the tire pressure in your MINI Cooper is so crucial.

How to Check the Tire Pressure in a MINI Cooper

It’s relatively easy to check your MINI Cooper tire pressure with a tire pressure gauge which you can purchase at the MINI of Warwick parts center. If you don’t have a tire pressure gauge, you’ll find that most Cranston, RI-area gas stations will have air hoses with a tire pressure gauge attached. To check your MINI Cooper tire pressure just unscrew the cap on the valve stem on each tire and carefully insert the gauge and adjust the pressure as needed.

MINI Cooper Tire Pressure Reset

Every new MINI vehicle is equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that will alert you if and when your MINI Cooper tire pressure is outside of the recommended range. If the TPMS light is activated, it means that one or more of your tires is either under or over inflated. 

When the MINI dashboard warning lights indicate an issue with the TPMS, you should check your tire pressure as soon as possible. Once you have addressed the problem by adding or releasing air from your tires, your TPMS light should reset automatically. If it doesn’t you may need to manually reset it. Here’s how:

  1. Start the engine and push the button on the end of the turn signal lever until “SET/INFO” is displayed in the dashboard vehicle message center next to your odometer display.
  2. Press and hold the button until the message changes and continue scrolling through messages by pushing the button until you see the tire monitor symbol and reset is displayed.
  3. Press and hold the button until the display changes. 
  4. The vehicle is now ready to recalibrate the TPMS system on your next drive. After a few minutes of driving, the system will calibrate to the newly-installed or adjusted tires and properly set the pressures to be monitored.
