No - but I have the Duct Tape Forever movie I can use as a reference.

And I can recite the Man' Prayer from memory - If I have to - I guess!

Don't forget the nitrogen !! It will be impossible to get the tire back completely round without nitrogen. !! Of course we are talking about the tires on the #1 vehicle right. Ford!! And it is a Diesel not Gas I assume.

I was afraid those nitrogen mollycules would be too big to come out through the valve stem so I just have plain air. I have noticed that the tires are a little flatish on the bottom side...
I do have a gasser, so I don't have to worry about the complications and higher cost of diesel air. But unfortunately I have the superior Chevy 8.1 instead of the lackluster Ford so I might be better off if I ordered new air from GM. You sure don't want to get any of that Chinese (extra chunky) air.

I think there is a recall on the GM air. There has been a known defect in the air as it will combine with flammable materials to burn. GM executives are currently trying to explain this issue to Congress.

I just wrap hot water bottles around my tires. Saves the trouble of removing and re-installing the air. Stale air will need to be re-balanced as the particles evaporate.

Congress should be an expert on hot air. I think they should give themselves another raise and better benefits when they get this resolved. I know I would.

Can you get hot water bottles that are rated for 75 mph?

All this talk about getting the air back in the right tires and nobody cares about the tires on the other side.

Are you saying we left those tires out of the process?

I'm completely in favor of proper inflation for all tires... even the spare if you have one... not that there is anything wrong with that.

Drove all day through Georgia, South Carolina, and ended up in Charlotte, NC. Rain most of the way... flooded rivers and creeks. It's supposed to be 75 on Christmas day... in Charlotte. Theese es loco.

Peace on Earth and good will toward men. (Killers, NNDGers, and any lurkers that happen to be about.) This is a grand time of the year to remember why it's called Christmas.
