Default Check your SPARE TIRE pressure!

Just a friendly reminder....check your spaire tire in the trunk!

I just looked at mine....12 PSI! I double checked just to be sure I was reading the gauge correctly! A little low for a tire that is supposed to be inflated to 60

The time you need it you'll be thankful you checked it....

I think we ought to compose a list of things to check, ya know like weekly, monthly, yearly that kind of thing... It seems a few of us check'em a little too late... Maybe what to check before a long trip... What a tune up involves... Ya know, all the things that are basically common knowledge, but are so easy to forget. Whad'ya think guys?

I have the air compressor in my car and I also carry a small spare compressor. I travel the highways and gas stations aren't always plentiful. Plus I hate when they try to charge you for air. What is up with that???

You'd be surprised how many people never think to check their spare tires until they need them. I carry my 12V air compressor with me when I travel to visit my relatives in Florida and Rhode Island and I always "Pump Them Up!"
