Default Show me your spare tire!!!

Just for fun.

I saw my spare tire for the first time last Friday. It was untouched since it rolled off the factory and still is untouched (I still haven't touched it)

I wonder what'* under there...


Wow!!!

Here is mine. I never checked it either, until one day I decided to do it and found this mess. At least a gallon of water and a nice slimey coating on the tire. I recommend everyone check it to not only put air in, but to make sure they aren't hauling an aquarium around.

60 PSI is the recommended inflation pressure, and if you don't have a HOSE to go with your compressor, or don't have the compressor to begin with, it'* critical to keep an eye on it. I was down to less than 20 PSI when I got my SSEi.

Mine is all rusted out. I went to check the well about a month back and it was FULL of water.
