I need to center align the text on the tiles of promoted links, which it does, but not consistently to all the tiles in all the lines when I use the CSS below. What am I missing?

One would guess that text-align: center itself would do the job, but because the promoted links have a modified display-attribute, they no longer conform to display: block, which takes all the available space and respects the styling of center. However, by changing back to display: block, the functionality still works so it's alright to add it to the code.

The following does the job:

.ms-tileview-tile-descriptionMedium {
    display: block;
    text-align: center;

If you only want to apply the changes to the body text, you need to have .ms-tileview-tile-descriptionMedium on the selected elements, and vice versa.
