I had never heard of the activity of rimming until I saw this post, have I lived a sheltered life ?
I don't know...do you feel somehow empty, as if you've just realized there's an undefined sensation of something missing, a nagging sensation that makes you feel as if there's a hole in your life?

With the coming heatwave next week I have topped up my oil with some water instead of oil to keep it cool.

I am more concerned with this mediterranean storm that is pumping heaps of hot warm air into my local area.

I filled up with winter air late last week when temperatures dropped to as low as 11 degrees but this morning, despite the rain, bled air out of all four tyres. With temperatures hitting 18 degrees I am concerned about just what is going on inside the rubber,

Not advised this season due to Covid-19 restrictions. Possible long term effects making tyres run out of energy (limp mode) and or unable to get going first thing.

If you really want to change, there are test versions of winter air available with infused with Vitamin D and/or dexamethazone and/or remdesivir. They seem to work, but use at your own risk.

With it being so wet recently do you think a dash of water in each tyre might be useful. If so, just plain tap water or Bottled water, still or fizzy?

Do you very knowledgeable guys expect a disruption to the supply of winter air due to the B**** word ?

Would it be best to buy in Bulk , both summer and winter air to avoid possible duties being imposed if a no deal scenario?

I must admit in a bit confused and worried, as I do like to keep up with my service regime, if I can’t change winter / summer air within the specified times will the manufacturer warranty be void?

In answer to the question regarding water in the wheel would Tizer do a better job, I assumed it was specifically for tyres ?
What do you think about using 7up for a beach ?

Your help would be most appreciated

Ps thinking off getting a tow bar, fridge, awning, topper, bike rack, tyres, any advice ?

I thought that was factory spec for one with a 3 seater bench + 2 middle row chairs? with the Lite version for the 4 seater.

But please fill with winter air first, else the tyres may not adhere to their load rating with additional accessories such as fridge awning batteries bellows bungee etc.. may add too much weight invalidating your warranty. Safely has to come first.
