    Default Safety tip* Prep for winter

    I was rotating my tires & decided to check the air pressure.
    It's been in the 20s at night,
    All 4 tires were low pressure & a few lug nuts were loose (not bad loose, but loose).
    Hot & cold temps, Air & metal expands & contract, it can loosen
    lug nuts & tire air pressure may be low.

    **Time to check tire pressure & lug nut tightness**

    Curious: how many will find the same thing?

    Low tire pressure after a bit of time is common, especially with decreasing temperatures. I've never heard of self-loosening lug nuts though. Are you sure there isn't something else going on? eg, under torqued nuts?
