Question came to mind because of some colder than usual weather we've had here these past couple of weeks, (-12°F at one point), and my wife's new fangled car with all it's sensors in its infinite wisdom told me the psi was low in all the tires.
Now, 1 or 2 psi is of course ignorable, but in this case we're talking over 5+ psi. Of course, as time went on the tires warmed up, Boyle's Law kicked in and the psi warnings cut off. But that's the dangerous part: Had someone inflated their tires at that temperature, taking them for a spin around the block, as the air heated to operating temperature, the tire pressure would increase and they risk a blowout, is that a correct assumption?
So, I'm posting this in case anyone has a similar question: Perhaps a person should take a spin around the block before inflating their tires, to warm them up first? And maybe refrain from tire inflation in the middle of July, until it cools down some? That would probably someone money at the air pump I'd imagine, if nothing else.
