    Will I need a new tyre? Accidentally parked car with half-tyre on the kerb. 28th Nov 17 at 3:18 PM
    Hello all,

    Couple of evenings ago I accidentally parked my car where the rear tyre was half parked on the kerb.

    It was like that all night until the morning where I adjusted it and parked properly.

    This morning when I was checking the tyre pressure that tyre hard 10PSI.

    Normally the tyre pressure would be 32 PSI.

    I re-pumped the tyre, and it looked like there was no obvious damage.

    Will I need to get that tyre replaced?

    Lesson learned to check every time I park how it is parked. Normally I don't make this type of mistake

    To be fair to the OP I have friends who think the tyre pressures are something they do on the annual service! I wish I was kidding. So 3 months is probably regular by comparisson to the average joe.

    Don't forget this cold snap will drop pressures by a couple of pounds.
