Default Checking Tire Pressure

While some small percentage of tire failures can be blamed on manufacturing defects, the biggest percentages are related to neglect. Running bald or underinflated (or both) as well as overloaded tires probably accounts for close to 90 percent of the catastrophic crash inducing failures. Usually punctures (nails etc.) cause slower deflation and generally are not anywhere near as sudden or catastrophic. Anyhow it still pays to check your tire pressures regularly and to look them over for cracking, tread depth, foriegn objects stuck in them etc. because it's your life (and your passenger's) riding on those tires.

Default RE: Tire Pressure Monitor

I've had good luck with Doran tire pressure monitor.
It'dheld up well in the weather, rain and out west heat too.
