After 13,000 miles and multiple trips to the track, our long-term 2015 Dodge Viper may need some new tires.

  • 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%.
