This is really funny, but don’t do it. Aleksi writes – “Fill your bicycle wheels with conveniently available pressurized air stored in automobiles.”Link.

  1. Would this work? Bicycle tires usually have a 60psi or so optimal fill amount. Vehicles seem to run at about 30psi. Wouldn’t the pressure just equalize?

  2. that’s what i was thinking, seems like if a bike tire was really low, it might sorta help. i don’t have a willing hummer to try this on (don’t do this folks, ktx).

  3. Don’t semi trucks run high pressure tires? Like up to 100psi. Lot of volume there too. Definitely anti-social behavior to steal their air, though.

  4. Only a real a-hole would intentionally deflate a motorists tire for their own sake. It’s dangerous and illegal. Get a hand pump you lazy dick.
