    I've done only 4,000km, TPMS alerted me but I thought it was a false alarm, service shop said all 4 wheels were outside the range evenly so TPMS was working just fine! Apparently if pressure is out by 3psi the sensor gives alarm. Is it the high pressure 45psi tyres that require pumping up every 4,000km?

    BTW will you swap tyres every 8,000km per manual?

    on any car tyres will loss air so check every 2 months.
    For me I drive a lot of SMD and loss about 3psi a month so I check every 2 weeks.

    If you can swap then yes do it, All 4 wheels same on my Stepwgn so I do it on that car but only front to back and back to front. (not left to right)
    its not how many km you driven, it is when you see the side of the tyres start to ware down.
    I wish I can swap tyres on my F10, I always use performance summer tyres which can not be swap.
