tires

I have a question. I took the IOM for a ride on Sat. and my low tire pressure warning light came on. I looked and it said tire pressure 29 lbs. I received a e-mail from Onstar stating these Perrilli tires need 36 lbs. Is this correct?

Where did you get that forecast? check out the National weather service.

Yes, 36 psi COLD is correct. Set them before you even drive a mile. Just one mile on them will raise the pressure by 1 psi or so. But don't go by the DIC, it is usually off by a few psi. My DIC readout is off by 4 psi. Get a good calibrated tire pressure guage and set them to 36, then see what the DIC reads. Then you will know where it is.

For every 10 degrees the outside temp changes, you will gain or lose 1 psi.
I use Nitrofill. Cost was 49.95 and they give you free roadside assistance and road hazard for a year. They will redo the fill whenever you need it.

Sounds right but the air pressure will fluxuate a lot with the difference in temp. Go drive it on a warm day and check the tire pressure, it will be fine!
Like Teddy P said, you can fill your tires with Nitrogen instead of air. It is not affected by the change in temps as much!

I could live with that date..... car won't be back in time for this Saturday. However I'll be back & attend if weather cooperates with us - landing at 7:30AM Saturday from Lingenfelter trip.

Post #2773 has full Maggie picks as of Monday morning - Dyno day this Friday!!!

I looked at an extended forecast for the 20th, and so far it looks good. 50 degrees and sunny is what it says for now. I'm keeping my fingers cross. See you all there, bright and early.

Lets get a list started for the Adam's Detailing clinic. I see that the following will be there.

Like Teddy P said, you can fill your tires with Nitrogen instead of air. It is not affected by the change in temps as much!
Nitrogen psi will still go up and down with temperature changes. Believe me, I've had Nitrogen in my tires since August, and I still have to add and remove psi as the temps go up and down. Also, you can't start out with low tire pressure and count on the warming tires to get the pressure up to 36 psi. ALL recommended tire pressures are COLD tire pressure. They are supposed to be at 36 psi BEFORE you drive the car. Then if they get up to 40 psi while driving, that is normal and DO NOT let pressure out to get it back to 36 psi. Just park the car overnight and it will go back to 36 as the tire cools back to its COLD temperature.

Here's a real good article in Corvette Magazine: http://www.nitrofill.com/documents/C...-Inflation.pdf

Here's a page from Nitrofill's website, concerning N vs. Air.

My Tires are Low! Now What?
Low tire pressure is generally due to one of the following three conditions:

1. A leak. Most tire leaks are the result of a hole or puncture, faulty valve, or a porous or corroded wheel.

2. Permeation. Permeation is the normal process by which the air in a tire bleeds through the tire’s body or carcass. It is typical for an "air" filled tire to lose 1-2 psi of pressure every month through normal permeation whereas it can take several months for a NitroFilled tire to lose a single pound of pressure.

3. Temperature Change. All gases expand and contract with temperature. If you live in an area that experiences dramatic temperature changes, you will have to adjust your tire pressure accordingly. Typically you will only have to adjust your tire pressure "up", adding pressure as ambient temperatures decrease. Count on losing about 2% of your total tire pressure for every 10 degrees in temperature reduction.
Participating NitroFill™ dealers will always check and correct your tire pressure with NitroFill™ for free during your membership period, and we recommend you have this done every 30 days if possible, or as often as your schedule permits. If you have NitroFill™ in your tires and do not have a leak, you should experience little or no pressure loss from permeation, but may still see pressure loss from seasonal temperature changes. While it is best to visit your NitroFill™ dealer for a free top off, it is fine to correct your tire pressure with regular compressed air for these normal and minor events without diminishing the benefits of NitroFill nitrogen filled tires.

If you have a "flat" tire or a situation where most or all of the nitrogen in your tire has been lost, you can also fill it with regular air if necessary, but we encourage you to visit your NitroFill™ dealer as soon as possible to have the tire(s) purged and refilled with NitroFill™ so you can continue to enjoy the benefits this product provides.

If you are a member of the NitroFill™ Auto Club most flat tires caused from road hazards, including tires damaged beyond repair, are covered, as is roadside assistance if your flat or damaged tire has left you stranded.

Why Inflate with NitroFill™?
Compressed air is your tire’s worst enemy. Air is about 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% other. Nitrogen is inert, non combustible and non corrosive. Oxygen, on the other hand, is immensely destructive to rubber and other tire materials. As soon as a tire is manufactured and exposed to air, the effects of “oxidation” begin to deteriorate the rubber. Over time it loses its elasticity and strength, just like an old rubber band you’ve probably found around your home. This same process occurs in tires inflated with air as the oxygen attacks the rubber molecules, working from the inside out, until the oxygen, and its destructive properties, permeates the tire structure and ultimately the tread.

Is All Nitrogen Gas Equal?
No, the purity of nitrogen available from nitrogen generators generally ranges from 95% (low purity) to 99.9% (high purity). NitroFill™ generators can produce nitrogen in excess of 99.9% purity and provide the procedures to guarantee a minimum of 95% purity in the serviced tire, which is the minimum allowable purity that must be maintained in the tire to enjoy the benefits that nitrogen provides. Few generator manufacturers currently discuss this mandatory 95% threshold, as few are able to consistently provide the required purity to achieve it. But, as the market matures, your customer WILL learn –so don’t take chances with their safety or your reputation- fill them with NitroFill™ !

Yes, 36 psi COLD is correct. Set them before you even drive a mile. Just one mile on them will raise the pressure by 1 psi or so. But don't go by the DIC, it is usually off by a few psi. My DIC readout is off by 4 psi. Get a good calibrated tire pressure guage and set them to 36, then see what the DIC reads. Then you will know where it is.

For every 10 degrees the outside temp changes, you will gain or lose 1 psi.
I use Nitrofill. Cost was 49.95 and they give you free roadside assistance and road hazard for a year. They will redo the fill whenever you need it.

Just use air. You did the right thing by being concerned hat it read 29psi. I fill mine to 36 +2 psi when cold and I've never had the warning light come on. I've checked when hot and it raises a few psi but nothing to concern me.

Ud_lose, doesn't look like the Adam's event is going to happen.
I just checked the forecast for Boulder and now they are only saying 14 degrees on Friday night, and a high on Saturday of just 28 degrees. Gonna be kind of hard to detail when the polish freezes on the car as soon as it is applied!!

I'll call Adam today and let him know that the weather will not let us do it this week. I'll also check, but it should be for the same times (9am-12pm) on April 3rd.
Hey look at it this way, now we have 2 more weeks to save up for all that polish and wax we want to buy.

I just got off the phone with Adam, and the March 20th detailing clinic is officially postponed. Our new date is April 3rd, 9am-12pm, Rain or Shine. I hope this will work for everyone.

Hey Brad, The two-tone paint turned out great. Can't wait to see it in person.
