I have over 30 years experience in the design, manufacturing, and testing of tires. I have served as the technical advisor to the "800" number. I have authored or co-authored many publications - usually without credit. I can answer almost any technical question, but please don`t ask me to compare brands. I probably have prejudices because of my work experience.

Skip, You asked: 1. How is it that cold pressure can vary but hot pressure always levels out at the "correct" driving pressure and stays there while driving? That just seems to defy logic!
Steve, Noise is not dependent on tire rotation direction nor mounting inside por out. So even if the tire are mounted incorrectly, they will not make more noise than if mounted correctly. But All
