comment Can I drive my 2013 Toyota Camry a few miles after Low Tire Pressure light comes on?
In a modern tire, a visibly low tire is dangerously low. I wouldn't drive on that much further than around the block.

comment Winter tyres - how necessary are they?
Yes, and I'm agreeing with you (twice now! ;-). It's colder where you are (on average) so winter tires are a better choice than my good-enough-for-Rhode-Island all seasons.

comment How much improvement from replacing an O2 sensor?
Thanks, I have plenty of thunder already. My suggestion is to add to your existing answer because it helps the 10000 people who ask the exact same question. Most people won't read the comments so an organized complete answer is our only communication path to them.

comment How much improvement from replacing an O2 sensor?
You're right that you might be able to measure a performance hit between a new and an old O2 sensor. However, most people wouldn't consider it worth their time to do the comparison. That said, O2 sensors have a finite lifespan. You might want to mention that at 127K miles, the O2 is probably done. Replacing it is usually not a hard DIY job and is certainly cheaper than what some shops would charge.... chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/340/2014/3/29

Exactly: if you're in a colder / snowier climate, all-seasons won't be sufficient.
