    It seems valid to infer that you survived as well.
    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...

    Safe bet. The S2000 survived, too.

    The 21" tires on my Sig Perf were delivered at 52 psi (cold). Tesla spec is 42 psi and manufacturer's stated max is 51 psi. Checking tire pressure regularly is always important, but given these experiences, everyone should check their tires as soon as they are delivered.

    Mine came at 52 as well. I was glad someone mentioned it on the TMC. I would not have checked otherwise. (sorry jerry)

    You always check tire pressures after anyone, other than yourself, has done work to the car. Many technicians have odd ideas about tire pressure. Myself, I'm just glad they are being delivered with more pressure rather than less--far less damaging to the tires.
