    Pulled the Challenger out of the Garage this morning and did my normal walk around,
    and damn, "That front Tire looks low"

    No warning Lights, tapped through the menu and found Tire Press: "all at 34lbs."

    The is the 1st time in the year having this New 2010 SRT I had to pull just one tire.
    Usually put it in the air, and pull all four.

    Crap, can't get a floor jack under the front, and now I see what you guys have been complaining about.
    and of course it happens to me raining outside and not enough room to change it in the garage with all the building materials we are working with.
    Guess I do need a set of those Jack Point adaptors :(

    Anyway, got the thing changed, and made it to work on time.
    Glad I still had a set of tires mounted, I could throw on.

    Rant Over,

    I feel for you. Tires ONLY go flat when it's raining or snowing.

    If you jack from rear point just in front of tire it lifts the entire side an you can pull front and safely place jackstand

    I'm 66 (too damned old to be messing around with a jack), but I spend a lot of time behind the windshield. I never travel without a small cylinder of compressed air with a fill whip. Saved my butt several times.
