It wasn't the flat they were laughing at.

BTW, does anyone know of a good place to buy fire-proof pickles. My local store stopped carrying them, however they still do have a good supply of dietetic shampoo.
Nice looking pony you have there!

Regardless of which variety of air one uses to inflate tires... bear in mind that the inflation parameter must compensate for the effects of counter-rotation for left tires as opposed to right. Counter-clockwise air must NEVER be used to inflate clockwise tires; however it is perfectly permissible to use clockwise air on counter-clockwise tires... as long as most of the high-speed travel will be in the forward vector.

The properties of clockwise air render it capable of serving both sides of the vehicle.
(For the Brits and Canadians... counter-clockwise is the American term for anti-clockwise.)

Note that tag axle tires are best left equalized to atmosphere (deflated) unless reverse speeds approach 70 MPH or greater. The excess weight of the air in those tires is simply not worth the additional fuel consumption to do otherwise. (At toll plazas, you can also make the case that the toll should be reduced based on having no air in those tires.)

But again, if you find yourself free-wheeling down a mountain grade going backwards at speeds approaching 70 MPH, the air in the tag-axle tires could be necessary... as would a clean pair of undershorts.

I want to know where the PINK AIR is that Fina promised us back in the late 50's?

now i think i know why so many of you have so much trouble with towing. you're using the wrong air in your tires. i prefer to keep summer air in mine during the winter, it keeps them warmer and rolling softer and smoother. and winter air in during the summer, it wil keep them cooler and less likely to blow out.

i have however learned the hard way, do NOT use the dehydrated water in the radiator in ANY season, as it will almost always cause the engine to overheat, though it is lighter and easier to carry

I usually carry some instant water just in case I have an emergency and regular water is not available. Either that or I collect rain water when the weatherman says we are having light rain because it has 1/3 the weight of regular water.

I prefer to use "political" hot air. There is enough now to inflate all the pneumatic tires on this planet, and the cost will be defered until.....November.

I don't think so, it has too much lead and acid in it!
