Why You Don't Overfill Your Car Tires, A Public Service Announcement

October 17, 2018

This is a video from Chevy Chase, Maryland, of a man who apparently kept putting air in his right front tire for over two minutes before it finally gave up trying to rationalize with him and blew up in his face, which he's lucky to still have. Did he think when the tire was full the air would just stop? Now I love putting air in my girlfriend's tires at the gas station as much as the next guy who likes scoring brownie points while simultaneously huffing as many gas fumes as possible, but this is not how it's done. For starters, he didn't even take his shirt off and smear grease all over his chest. My girlfriend loves that move. "It's so embarrassing." And the sexy dance I do with the windshield squeegee between my legs?! "Remember how last time I left you at the gas station?" You said it was an accident!

Keep going for the video while I daydream about all the gas fumes I breathed that day waiting for her to come back (she didn't, I had to walk home with a pounding headache).

Thanks to hairless ,who at least didn't get that way over-inflating his car tires like a maniac.

    Maybe he was reading atmospheres instead of psi? 34 atm = 500 psi.

    Why were they filming??

    Too shaky....and vertical

  • Keegano

    This would be employees at the service station, filming security footage on screen with their phone.

    You had one job and you blew it!

  • GeneralDisorder

    Did you ever have one of those days where your tire just blows up in your face? Me either. But I don't use cheap no-name Chinese tires or shitty badly done retreads.

    Air is his constant inane negativity and personal attacks on me

    Doesn't make any SENSE!

    He had places to go, bursting with pride;
    With his inflated ego, he maintained his own ride;
    But then he got tired, and thus was he wrecked;
    From his job he was fired, tire pressure unchecked.


    Dude is lucky to have a face. I wonder if he can hear anything today.

    This is why Home Economics and Shop and basic life skills really need to be brought back in school. The only way this might be forgivable is it it was one of those the new automatic air machines. We have one that I've used that has a digital LED screen and you put in the pressure you want and then it automatically cuts off when you hit that number. It will also show the pressure your tire is when you start to fill so you see the counter go up. But since he's not looking at a screen and doesn't seem to be using a tire gauge then IDK.

    You don't need class to read the side of the tire. They all tell you how much pressure to use. That pump also almost certainly told him how much pressure he was putting in there. No need to make excuses for idiocy.

  • Kent

    There's also a sticker inside the driver's door frame on modern cars with the proper pressures.

  • Bling Nye

    Yep. Plus, I haven't seen an air fill station in recent memory that doesn't have an inline pressure gauge or digital pressure gauge. He done fucked up.

  • The_Wretched

    None of the air pressure dispensers I've seen in my entire State for the last 15 years I've been here has an inline pressure guage or finger based pressure gauge. It's all pssssht and check, phsssssht and check.

  • Bling Nye

    Sounds like a real shithole. ;)
