60 psi in tires!

Filled my tires up at a gas station today. I usually go by the built in gauge and then check it with my own. I find they are usually pretty accurate actually. Today, filling up the tires. Filled the front to 30. Took a long time. Hmmm. Checked it. SIXTY. Aired it back down quick. Like I said, I always double check anyway, but I never would have thought it would be that off. Dangerous. I shared. Feel better now.

I know heat {after the tires warm up} that the air pressure increases ,,how much? I dont know. If you had left the 60 in there,, chitty chitty bang bang,,,What about Dick van Dyke in that movie??? Bizzare Movie,,,,,,best seen when taking LSD. Just kidding,,,I would never do somthing like that,,,,,its just not right.Maybe.
