Well, the wife hit a pothole in the MPV yesterday and slit the sidewall of one of the brand new Michelin Hydroedges I had put on 3 weeks ago Crying or Very sad

Got the flat changed and replaced the tire. But, when I was checking the pressure on the spare tire, it was only 30 lbs Shocked It is supposed to be 60 lbs. So, apparently after 3 years, the spare loses half its pressure (if you don't bother to check it Embarassed

So, the next time you are puttering around the car, drop the spare and give it a check Wink

Thanks for the heads-up. My first order of business is to see if the tire lowering mechanism works, then I'll have to check the air pressure. Thanks! Smile
