background
If you drive an Audi A4, it’s recommended that you fill your tires with 30 to 32 pounds per square inch (psi) of air. 
We don’t have the stats to back this up, but we’d be willing to wager that the tire pressure dashboard light is one of the most often ignored—or at least the one that drivers put off the most. And while checking your tire pressure can often feel like a pain, it’s essential to safe driving and can even help maintain your car’s fuel efficiency.

What is the right tire pressure for an Audi A4?

Your Audi A4’s tires need between 30 and 32 psi of air—but this figure can change depending on the tire size. Generally speaking, wider Audi tires (those that measure 245 mm in width) need an additional 3 to 5 psi of air
But, to be absolutely certain about the amount of air you need in your A4’s tires, you should check the sticker on the driver’s side door jamb. Regardless of trim level, model year, or tire size, the sticker will have all the info you need about how much air your specific Audi A4 needs.

How to check Audi A4 tire pressure 

The A4 is truly an accomplishment of high-tech German engineering—you can check your tire pressure without leaving your front seat! The tire pressure of each tire is displayed on your Audi’s infotainment screen, you’ll just need to do a little clicking around to find it. If the air in one of your tires is too low, your Audi will alert you via the low pressure tire light
It’s also handy to know how to check your tire pressure manually with the help of a
tire pressure gauge
. To use it, you will first need to remove the valve stem cap from each tire. Next, push the mouth of the tire gauge onto the valve stem, and the gauge will give you a reading. 
But if your tire pressure truly is on the lower side, it won’t come as a surprise. Decreased performance, uneven ride, and wonky steering might all point to an issue with tire pressure. 

How often should you check tire pressure?

To prevent your tire pressure from becoming too low and risking a blowout, we recommend you check your tire pressure at least once a month—and always check it before any major road trips. 

How to tell if your Audi A4 needs new tires 

As a rule of thumb, we recommend getting a new set of tires for your A4 every six years. But, if you notice low tread depth or weird bulges on your tires, you should probably consider swapping out your wheels a little ahead of schedule. 
If you don’t know how to check the tread depth, we can teach you how to do it with just a U.S. penny! Stick the penny in the tire tread Lincoln’s-head-first: if you can see the top of old Abe’s head, your tread is too shallow. 

How to reset the Audi A4 tire pressure monitoring system (TPSM) light 

After you refill your tire pressure to the correct pressure, you may notice that your tire pressure warning light may stubbornly remain on. To get it to flip off, you will need to
reset the tire pressure monitoring system
.  
First, put your A4 into accessory mode, meaning the electrical components are on, but the engine is off. On your Audi’s main menu screen, you’ll see various categories: sound, radio, telephone, etc. For our purposes, you’ll need to select “Vehicle.” 
After you select “Vehicle,” you’ll be brought to a new screen that displays comfort, auto, dynamic, and an icon with three vertical lines. Navigate to the icon with the three vertical lines and select it. This will bring you to another new menu screen that lists Audi drive select, vehicle settings, etc. 
From this menu, click on “Service & Checks,” then “Tire pressure monitoring,” then “Store tire pressure,” then “Store now.”  It takes a fair amount of clicking around, but once you do this, that pesky tire pressure light on your dashboard should turn off.
