Aww, that takes all the fun out of it. But I have thought about that.

Or you could consider coiling the air hose in a cooler filled with ice (and store your beer at the same time). Might be that "denser, chilled air" would provide greater pressure when warmed and at the same time cool the "sun baked tire" and provide more accurate end results ???

Hmmm, there's an idea, kill two birds with one cooler. Would have to eliminate some of the beer though. I like the idea of denser, chilled air cooling the hot tire. Might have a market for that.

The link/pic doesn't work.

You mean, just go out and have fun? What kind of crazy talk is that?
