Major tire companies sued the U.S. government to block a new tire pressure monitoring regulation for all cars and light trucks. They do not oppose the actual legislation, but the across-the-board standard. In the current system, a dashboard light will warn if air pressure drops 25 percent. The tire companies argue that a 25 percent drop in air pressure "may leave some tires so under-inflated they cannot safely support a fully loaded vehicle." They also want the legislation to require monitoring systems to operate with replacement tires. How about doing what the rest of us do? Buy a $5 gauge and keep an eye on your tires. Works will all tires, standard and aftermarket.ÿa??Ÿ%Ÿ%??¯9
