Thought it would be a good poll.





... No offence to be taken on a real problem, OCD, not the spare's pressure... Wink

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety. Anxiety is a complex combination of the feeling of fear, apprehension and worry often accompanied by physical sensations such as palpitations, chest pain and/or shortness of breath. It may exist as a primary disorder or may be associated with other medical problems including other disorders Question

I did kinda lie in the poll. I answered "Never, where is that darn spare... anyway?" I know where my spare tire is... It's in the driveway next to the trash can.


I dropped my spare and tried to check the pressure.
The valve stem broke off and the wheel is covered in rust.

I was going to relube the winch mechanism, so I left the tire off.

I also added rear heat, so I had to drill out one of the rivets for the heat shield... The heat shield has been hanging off of two rivets and hitting every speed bump.

My wife's been driving around like that for about a month now.

At least I tied the heat shield up with a zip tie now.

My RX-7's 16 inch Aluminum spare fits the MPV, but the spare tire holder won't fit through the centerbore of the spare wheel.

Self installed rear heat; heated mirrors, fog lights, large wiper bottle, Heavy duty wiper motor. Working on the whole 4-Seasons Package; Just need a transmission cooler.

its 50-60psi for the donut IIRC.

I carry a compact air compressor. Learned my lesson when I had a tire blow out in the middle of a bridge. The donut was completely flat and the tow truck only had a tank, no compressor to fil it. Rolled for about 5 miles trying to find a gas station to fill up the tire. Yeesh.
