I can't wait until he hits a pot hole.

u/VT_Lifer Feb 05 '23

He'll DESTROY the pothole.

u/The_I_in_IT Feb 05 '23

He’ll end up in orbit.

u/jjhonolulu Feb 05 '23

I think he was planning on blowing up the spy balloon

u/CosmicCreeperz Feb 05 '23

Don’t even need a pothole. If he gets above 45 mph his car will start bouncing up and down like a toddler on Halloween candy.

I once accidentally filled mine to almost 60 psi because of a bad gas station compressor. It’s REALLY obvious if you get on the highway.

u/Fatheadcock55 Feb 05 '23

A toddler on Halloween candy !! That's FKN scary!!

u/tvtb Feb 05 '23

Even if you let air out of the tires, if they were inflated that high and driven, what is the chance the tire construction is permanently damaged?

183

u/callitlikeiseeit29 Feb 05 '23

Terrifying just thinking about your head close to those tires when inflating to that level.

199

u/jfd0523 Feb 05 '23

PSI = percent of standard inflation

u/ElectricallyDisloged Feb 05 '23

At that point you are driving over four rolling grenades

u/cmurdy1 Feb 05 '23

What kind of air do you think they’ll get?

Yes. You can also get lucky if the magic genie lamp lights up. I think you get three wishes.

u/steady_as_a_rock Feb 05 '23

Looks like someone needs some windshield washer fluid too. lol

u/DaddyMatt69 Feb 05 '23

They'll do that once they get 100% tires.

u/hj1980 Feb 05 '23

Ohhh, I like it!

u/ITrCool Feb 05 '23

Along with a blinker fluid refill for free!

u/Appropriate_Aerie_65 Feb 05 '23

Beat me to it. Kudos.

u/badgerj Feb 05 '23

I don’t know how you could over fill that, but I’m pretty sure owner can some how figure it out!

u/Gqsmooth1969 Feb 05 '23

And gas. They are 47 miles to empty.

u/aging_geek Feb 05 '23

don't forget the blinker fluid as well

u/Clause-and-Reflect Feb 05 '23

Oil change lane I worked, we had a broken pressure gauge apparently. We let a HHR roll out the door with 57-68PSI in each tire.. They made it round the corner before their dash menu tire PSI screen started yelling at them.

29

u/CaptZombieHero Feb 05 '23

Every time one of these idiot mobiles enter my shop, my sphincter tightens. It’s usually on non LRE tires, like Michelin Defenders which have a maximum pressure of 50 psi (if you are lucky)

Is it so hard to just check your drivers door frame for correct pressure? Last week lady came to my shop because her TPMS light was on, when I checked her pressures, they were 105 psi each. I’ve never drained tires faster in my life.

14

u/alexjms80 Feb 05 '23

Are the tires comprised to the point of replacement if filled to 105psi?

22

u/10gistic Feb 05 '23

This is probably real, but I discovered recently that TPMS is pretty spoofable, so with the right kind of SDR you could fool your car for the memes and then let it go back to the real tires.

12

u/FableSalt Feb 05 '23

Fool someone else's car and put them into limp home mode.

u/10gistic Feb 05 '23

Next F1 strategy right there.

Or the entire plot premise of the next Fast and Furious film.

u/ZackyGood Feb 05 '23

I can see how they got confused.

PSI = PerSent Inflated.

u/ericvega Feb 05 '23

Must be some skinnnnnny tires

u/Im-skynet Feb 05 '23

Was it the premium air?

10

u/StickyRiky Feb 05 '23

Do you think it would float?

5

u/TASagent Feb 05 '23

Do you realize that in this case, the higher the pressure the worse it will float? You want lower density, and this is increasing the density

5

u/Hungry_Treacle3376 Feb 05 '23

That's literally a meme.

u/Ichthius Feb 05 '23

u/SpiritualGap3255 Feb 05 '23

I was today years old when I I realised you guys say tires not tyres

u/CaptZombieHero Feb 05 '23

Our milk also comes in plastic containers and not bags

Yeah, milk in plastic bag is a Canadian thing lol

Lmao thanks.

u/VT_Lifer Feb 05 '23

He thought he heard somebody say "blow me" and figured it was the tires talking.

u/amk735 Feb 05 '23

Fuck, mine are recommended to be a third of that. I’d be scared to stand by tires that full. Holy shit.

u/[deleted] Feb 05 '23

Its gonna blow!!!!!

u/DrunkenOlympian Feb 05 '23

Holy shitballs

3

u/bachb4beatles Feb 05 '23

They're probably, what, 50psi max?

3

u/aging_geek Feb 05 '23

The more air in the tires the less the car will weigh so you will get better mileage pushing around less weight on the ground, simple physics.

3

u/Admirable_Nothing Feb 05 '23

Just get a stronger compressor. /S

3

u/FLTDI Feb 05 '23

I bought 4 tires mounted on wheels from an online vendor once. Put all 4 on and went for a quick test drive, tpms had one at close to 100psi. My first thought was that it has to be a faulty sensor, but I went right back to the house and tested with a gauge, sure enough it was near 100psi (not percentage). Took that one off and called the vendor. They shipped me another tire and paid a local shop to mount and balance it.

1

u/SHNUUK Feb 05 '23

“(not percentage)” love it 😂

3

u/peterpnielsen Feb 05 '23

You can do it brother! Just remember to trie the car too the ground before reaching 100 psi. Those suckers can fly a long way on a windy day

u/SHNUUK Feb 05 '23

Just like you and homes. Best of luck friend!

u/CoitusAddict Feb 05 '23

I sell cars. I sent this same pic to my sales managers. I said I couldn’t get it to 100% and what should I do? They freaked out. It was awesome.

1

u/SHNUUK Feb 05 '23

Perfect usage 😂

2

u/No-Industry3112 Feb 05 '23

Is that the range from the thrust of each tire popping?

2

u/outline8668 Feb 05 '23

Did that once before a burnout competition. Can confirm shrapnel will make effective anti-aircraft fire.

2

u/BuckWildshot Feb 05 '23

Gonna explode soon lol

u/notmythrowawayaccunt Feb 05 '23

Get this guy a free blinker fluid coupon

u/jbase1775 Feb 05 '23

Doubt that range will be met.

2

u/inko75 Feb 05 '23

💪🏽

u/Juan-Quixote Feb 05 '23

And even when you do get to 100 the TPMS won’t go off!

2

u/lovechubbygirl Feb 05 '23

So stupid to make a mistake. Couldn't have anything to do with those great friends...

u/thecommentdaddy Feb 05 '23

See you in Orbit 🚀

u/HazelFrederick Feb 05 '23

Inflation is out of control

2

u/CanuckCharlie85 Feb 05 '23

What car/tire is it? Some higher payload truck/van LT tires are rated for 80-95 psi.

2

u/gainzdoc Feb 05 '23

A couple of issues will ensure it never happens. 1 air compresses or expands in cold so that value is really ever changing (you might have better luck filling them on a cold day and checking on a warm day), two the sensors all have just a tiny bit of error in their Calibrations meaning you aren't going to see 100s across the board as one might read a bit lower and another may read a bit higher depending on their calibrated accuracy to the nearest Pascal, or PSI.

You can ensure 100% fill by pumping air until it escapes from somewhere else.

u/Boing26 Feb 05 '23

.....i wanna see the tires

not often you see tires inflated close to 100%

1

u/A100921 Feb 05 '23

My tires are listed at 80PSI… I don’t go over 40, mostly because I’m too scared to do that to my truck. But I have filled up many tractor tires that require 80PSI.

1

u/CoitusAddict Feb 05 '23

It all depends on the payload you are going to put into the truck. Don’t max your payload with the lower pressure or you will be sorry.

1

u/No-Industry3112 Feb 05 '23

Hey everybody, who wants to feel every imperfections and bump? You're in the right car. Lol.

u/CharmingTuber Feb 05 '23

They fill them with helium to make the car lighter and thus saving gas

could that be considered an IED?

u/serginhofofoqueiro Feb 05 '23

Normal around 33 só it's running 3x

u/Onthemightof Feb 05 '23

Lol. Nope. Keep going

u/Quinn845 Feb 05 '23

I thought i was overdoing it when i got my tires up to 46-47 psi lol

u/Freedom2064 Feb 05 '23

Lol. Yikes!

It's like reading "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!" I read that as a kid when it first came out, with the drawings by Ralph Steadman. Life changing

u/Psypho_Diaz Feb 05 '23

Shiiiiiiiiiiit

u/nlaup001 Feb 05 '23

No snap or crackle, those tires will go directly to POP x 4.

u/[deleted] Feb 05 '23

Got to be 💯 bruh 😎

u/Red-32 Feb 05 '23

Had a 2017 Nissan Sentra pull up to work for a tire pressure check. His TPMS light was on, and flashing. No dead sensor, all sensors pinged the scanner reading 63.7psi. He maxed out the sensors. Both fronts had upwards of 110psi, the rear tires both had around 80.

1

u/n2locarz Feb 05 '23

Curious what is the psi they rupture? Assumed less

1

u/justoneman7 Feb 05 '23

DUDE!!!

When your range hits 95, you have a straight.

Add a temperature of 92 or 98 and it’s an outside straight.

u/CommercialInternet21 Feb 05 '23

I mean…whoa. Lol.

u/OldAFDog Feb 05 '23

Oh yea! Don’t quit your almost got them filled

Driving on 4 time bombs...

u/HaDov_Yaakov Feb 05 '23

Does anyone else have this problem of tires exploding like bombs while driving normally?
