Super Market air is low quality eh! Heard it all now.
So we now have to jack up our baby cars, remove all the air from the tyre. Then unless we have previously purchased a compressor, use a foot pump to replace the air.
And that on all 4 wheels twice a year.....
Things have got a bit out of hand here, any one doing that needs urgent help from the Medics.

That is without trying to keep the car running and serviced.
Oh and MOT'ed

You're all over-thinking the seasonal differences in air quality - the real issue is using daytime air at night which as eny fule kno is a surefire recipe for problems. Us pro drivers reinflate our tyres at sunset and sunrise to avoid such issues.

You're absolutely right. At this time of year, I find I'm going to work in the daylight but it's dark by the time I'm going home so I have to change my air out in the car park at my work before I can leave. It's not easy keeping on top of this stuff.

Oh - and don't forget to adjust your pressure gauges to compensate for variations in barometric pressure as the seasons change...

It would be much easier to keep pressure sensitive wheels and tyres in our boots. And take them indoors at night to keep nice and warm.
At that l post no more.

Some people do that, hence winter wheels and summer alloys

I've got a spare set in the garage to go on so my alloys can come inside to be warm by the fire for Christmas

I have all the tyres constantly hooked up to digital pressure testers and if they go 0.0001 psi out I will fill them up to make sure nothing bad happens to them when they are in my sitting room

I've also used gaffa tape on my winter tyres so they will grip better in the rain and snow
