What should be tire presser?

I have E46 02 330I Sport Package and wheels size front 225/45-17 & rear 245/40/17. What should be tire presser? According to owner's manual it should be 32 psi front and 36 psi rear. But ride is bumpy.
I don't want to keep air presser too low or too much and tire ware uneven. Please advise.

The air pressure should not be what is making your ride bumpy

Check the label on the inside edge of your drivers door, it lists the correct pressure for your model. Also, get a good, analog dial pressure gauge, not one of those "pencil" types, and definitely not the one built in to the air hose at the convienence store. They are about $5 for a fairly accurate one.
But, as Kermitthefloer said, tire pressure is probably not your problem. If it is a stock suspension, then your shocks could be messed up. If you put on an aftermarket suspension, then you bought springs that are too stiff for your shocks.
And turn on your damn spellcheck on your computer or phone or whatever you used to post this, because you can't spell for sh!t.
