Q. Why are my tires so flat!?!

A. Your tire is filled with gas, which in the cold doesn’t take up as much volume, so the pressure drops.  Some mornings you will wake up and you’ll have a couple pretty flat tires.  This isn’t time to freak out!  If you haven’t lost that much air, you can drive it to the closest gas station and put a couple quarters in and pump it up to the correct psi, or you can bring it to a garage where they will usually top it off for free.  If this is happening very often, you might want to invest in a personal car tire pump, which run anywhere from $10-$100.  Never drive on an entirely flat tire, as you run the risk of ruining your rim and the tire completely.
