Is it possible that an aged and/or damaged tire valve will give a
reading that's much higher than the actual pressure? My 97 Escort has
a tire that reads at 45 psi when the tire is clearly underinflated
(bordering on flat). The reading doesn't really go up as I inflate to
what looks right either.
Thanks for any help,
Thanks for the feedback. I've tried 2 different pressure
gauges...therein lies my confusion. They both showed the same (and
accurate) readings on the 3 other tires. I guess I'll trust my eyes
until I replace that tire later this year.
