So let me tell you about the last couple of days and my experience with tires. Oh boy and what a time! It all start with a low pressure light, and don’t worry, it has a happy ending.

Over the weekend I had a warning light come on and have seen it so many times before. One of my tires was low on air and I sadly have no air compressor of my own so it was time to take it back to the dealer and use there. If only it were that easy.

When the mechanic and I were airing up the tires we noticed that one of them was low. With winter coming, the last thing you want is low pressure. It is unsafe and can cause you to further lose control that first time you hit an ice patch this year.

So after we pull a two inch lag bolt out of my tire, that I can’t even begin to think of where I may have picked that up, we decide to use Nitrogen to fill the tires back up. Did you know that on cold winter nights your tires can lose up to a full pound of air? It doesn’t take many nights like that for your tires to get pretty flat. The best thing about Nitrogen is they don’t deflate anywhere near that fast. I highly recommend that you use Nitrogen for your tires.


So the story continues as I then find out I have a cracked tire sensor that made the light keep going off in the dash.  So if you’re worried about the winter and what it may do to your tires, then I recommend you come on down to Louisville Ford. We can help you be ready for the harsh driving conditions and be safe out there. The larger the vehicle is the more important this is too. If you’re in the neighborhood of Louisville Ford, F150 looking like it might be riding a little low in the tires, then roll on in and we’ll make sure you roll out more inflated, and ready for winter. Good luck.
