    Viper has 6 lug wheels. Mustang has 5. I'm going out on a limb here and saying absolutely not.
    Before looking at that picture, I didn't know 6 lug wheels on cars were a thing.

    Over the years that I have been lurking here, I have seen so many instances of TPMS telling you folks your tires are all low on various LT cars. I would say the issue is that you are going too long between queries, either using the TPMS or via a tire gauge, of the tires' pressure levels. Summer has ended and temps are dropping...and that means you have to recheck pressures.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and estimate that the likelihood of your Viper's four tires all having identical-loss-rate slow leaks is infinitesimal.

    Here's what I don't understand about the whole "we fill your tires with Nitrogen" argument. If Nitrogen is such a benefit, then why does pressure drop so early in the tire's life. Of course, these are just 220 wear tires (if that means anything) and $1,364 (base cost) to replace a set from Tire Rack, so who cares? You'll be buying a new set every (best case every other) year anyway.

    Winter is coming, so you can expect the pressures to be low.

    It looks like the engine is running but the oil pressure is 0. Am I missing something?

    OT here...I didn't realize this Viper had that much fender gap.

    I think that gauge is actually digital in that the line slowly moves upwards. So I think the gauge actually reads about 75%.
