I know some Corvette owners garage their cars for the winter. If you do that, you probably still have summer air from last summer, and while it's aged some, it will still work fine this summer. If it's over 3 years old, you might want to change it out anyway.

For those who daily drive their Corvettes, it's more important to run the correct air in your tires (at the correct pressure).

Tough crowd here today.

Has anyone tried "all season" air? The local tire shop recommended this to my wife when I sent her there today for "summer air." She has a classic Mercedes Benz, with all season Michelin tires. I also told her she needed "Genuine Mercedes Benz" summer air for her car. The local tire place didn't have any "Genuine Mercedes Benz" air at all, summer or all season. I guess I'll have to send her to the dealership for that.

I had the air in my tires swapped when I changed out the blinker fluid.

I run a special all-season mix of 78% Nitrogen, 21% Di-oxygen, and 1% secret additives.

The Bigfoot that services my car fills my tires with Unicorn farts. He said it should be good until late Fall.
