What tire pressure for stock 18's?
 
Drive mostly in the city, can the pressure be adjusted to reduce the chance of bending a wheel. I also take frequent highway trips so i cant sacrifice much. The door sticker said max 36psi front and 46psi rear, seem strange? Currently i am running 35 in front and 41 in rear.TIA

Just follow the info on the door sticker according the the number of passengers you most often carry. You can bump up a couple of pounds to give a little extra insurance against road damage but don't go too high or you'll wear your tires too fast.

I'm in Boston too and commute every day to the North Shore. I'm running 37 all-around right now and it's been pretty good so far. Might change things around and start running higher for the rears soon.

That should be fine. I actually took my car in for service yesterday and ask the same question to the head tech guy at Global BMW in Atlanta. I'm getting 18'' put on my car next week and I will run 36 in front and probably 40 in back.
