The Diary of the Phantom Tire Buyer #45:

A Web Log about tire pressure from A Phantom Tire Buyer with a Secret Identity

I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite pastimes is to wonder about and check the tire pressure on various vehicles.  If I can help improve even one person’s tire wear and vehicle safety, to me that is time very well spent.  But, even on my best day, I can only check between 300 to 400 vehicles.  (Although, on June 21st, the longest day of the year, I checked 628 vehicles.)  So, I can’t promise to get to your personal vehicle. 

Tire Discounters to the rescue!   Did you know that you can stop in any Tire Discounters at any time and they will check out your tire pressure and inflate your tires as needed?  And you don’t have to be, like me, a close personal friend of Chip Wood.  You don’t even have to be a Tire Discounters customer! 

Oft times I’ll pull into a Tire Discounters and request that they check my tire pressure just to make sure that the calibration is correct on my Phantom Tire Pressure Gauge.  Then I’ll get to joshing with the guys and gals at the store.  I could stay there for hours swapping tire related stories.  But, after a few minutes they will start looking at their watches and excuse themselves.  After all, there’s work to do!
