The PSI rating on your tires is for cold tires.
As the rubber heats up from driving the air inside them expands & the PSI increases - likewise, when cold, the air inside contracts & the PSI decreases.
Nitrogen is not suspectable to this thermal expansion/contraction & is now being used by most tire shops.
++ on the moisture in the air freezing & causing the valve to stick
'03 996 - sport exhaust, sport seats, M030 sport suspension, stability control
'86 944 - Wilks PP2, strut brace, harness bar, M030 sway bars, 200# springs, koni adj, throttle cam, K&N filters, momo wheel & shift knob - faster in the twisties than a mustang
