    Well I just got back from the shop and all the busgings and shocks are good. Turns out when I got new tires 2 months ago they put 50 pounds of pressure in the back tires!!!! We lowered it to 35 where it's SUPPOSED to be. So yeah my tires were floating on the interstate. So problem fixed, thank you Lord!

    You were lucky. Whenever I work on a car(tires/oil change/alignment) I always check the pressure in the tires. I have seen worse though in my years of being in automotive.

    yeah so now my tires are gonna wear funny in the middle so I'm gonna take it by the tire place and tell them and expect new tires! They only have 1,000 miles on them.

    When I replace tires on an F-body, I put 32 psi in the tires as to leave room for desired inflation/deflation by the customer. Each customer has their preferences. But it IS good that this was an easy and free fix.

    yeah no kidding! Glad I caught it before the tire exploded. Still can't believe someone was that stupid.

    Well, over time, tires can gain psi. When I bought my summer tires, I kept them at 30-32 psi. I would check the tires every other week to make sure they maintained the desired psi. I forgot to check for two months and when I checked the tires, they had 45 psi.

    If I recall correctly, every 10 degree change in temperature results in approximately a 1 pound change in air pressure.

    I believe you are correct Jeff. Many customers have come to me to have their tires adjusted over the winter. I lost count.
