    Hehehe.....yea, I read in the newspaper someone was predicting it might hit 40 degrees a couple days this winter, here. I can barely function when it's 50 so hopefully the prediction trues out. Warm nuts beat frozen every time.

    Don’t have anything to do with trucks do you? My F150 expects 55 PSI front and 60 PSI rear.

    This was an inside joke, my friend.

    Refer to post #25 in this thread for a link to the "Rest of the story" as Paul Harvey would say.

    I'm always on people about their tire pressure.

    You guys will love this: most people I know are Democrats, and Democrats never fill their tires! I'm often dragging people down to the gas station because they are driving on ten pounds of air.

    Feel free to banish this into the appropriate thread, but had anyone else noticed this?

    They are also mostly fanatic devotees of Consumer Reports, a publication that "flunks" any car that has a substantial maintenance schedule.

    60 psi. is that max noted on the tire or a label on the door frame?

    My max is 44 on the tire and 32 recommended on the label

    pairof44sp,

    Much like you, I observe a lot of vehicles with underinflated tires when I am stopped behind them at intersections (or in a parking lot).

    I "used" to try to pull up alongside these folks at the next intersection and use hand signals to try to get them to roll down their window so I could share my observation and encourage them to have their tire pressure checked/adjusted.

    Countless times they (male & female) were completely unaware . . . and thanked me.

    But - nowadays - with road rage being what it is - I no longer feel that it is safe to pull aside another vehicle and motion for them to roll down their window.

    Especially since no one needs a truck and they are all used for mall crawling

    Would somebody remind me in a month or two? It's 4:30 a.m. and 65. The forecast high today is 80. I hope there's some shade on the lake.

    Your right, my 2014 Honda CRV (75,000 miles) just had a LOF change last month with tire rotation.
    Then my TPMS system went. into overdrive, I would lazily reset it almost twice daily before getting a day off to take it into BELLE TIRE.
    At first they told me my right front had a bead leak and corrosion on the aluminum tire rim area, so they fixed it.
    TPMS kept going on and off throughout the week, again I got up on my day off and this time they said it was the same issue on the drivers front, and fixed that, so it seems, its been OK so far this week.
    I like Belle Tire, but you think they would have checked all four tires the first go round.

    I'll remember to ignore that advice the next time I'm hooking up to a trailer loaded with over 10,000 pounds.

    Just read the disclaimer as I was reading down the posts. Got it.

    You want to go by the sticker commonly found on the driver's door jam and that only works for the factory tires or replacements that are factory equivalent.

    Yes, but only good for the factory tires or tires that are factory replacements.

    All nitrogen does is separates money from your wallet. See post 33 above.

    Tire sidewall only shows maximum pressure for that make and model of tire. If close to a factory replacement, you still use the sticker on the door jam. Going off the reservation on tire will require experimentation.

    Every winter the southern pansies crack jokes about weather.

    Pro tip: You can make more money plowing snow in three months than you can make in a year bar tending on a beach.

    This would cause far less potential issues than under inflation. Should cover you for temp fluctuations

    I went thru this in mid September when the temperature dropped. My tire pressure light came on and I filled the tires to factory specs. I drove it for twenty miles and the light stayed on. I found out my tire pressure gauge is off a few pounds. Finally got the light out by adding more air. tom.:fist:
