I see this every day word for the wise for the rest of u even driving with low air can damage ur tire example if ur tire says max pressure 44psi dont run it less ten 15psi for any extended period it will wair the rubber off of the inside of the tire were the side wall joins to the crown of the tire weakining the casing and causing the potencial of a blow out and to all u that say bs i run less than that at the track u need spiecial tub style tires or spiecially manufactured tire to do that on a regular bases do to often and ill be seeing u soon at my tire shop for new rubber if u dont wreck when u blow out.... Optamial performance fuel econamy and ride comfort are achieved on a tire with a max pressure of 44psi when run at approx 35psi... Tire shope rule of thumb: 10 psi less then max on all 4-6ply tires (44-60psi rating) belive me i know tires its what i do for a living.

It wasn't totally flat and I didn't have much of a choice. I'm currently without a compressor

I was pretty happy with $125. Got $50 off, my uncle works at a tire place. No damage except to the tire and a few dings in my bank account lol
