Tighten down the valves in your tires valve stems.....My trip to Sears Point for the ALM/TRANSAM races was delayed when checking tire pressure.... I found 2 tires low. Pumped 'em up and had a lot of air leaking out of one of the valve stems.

Tire dealer said it's a common problem. The guys that mount your tires and install the valve stem many times will fail to tighten the valves. Or, it may come that way from the factory.

For $2.00 you can buy a valve wrench and make sure you don't have leaks. All 4 of mine needed to be tightened up!!

Hope you find my experience useful....

You already have a valve stem tool in your inflator kit. I know, I have already had expience with it. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif
