2014 Mini Cooper: Tires Are Fine

December 30, 2014

2014 Mini Cooper

In my last update I reported that after getting a low-tire warning in our long-term 2014 Mini Cooper I followed the car's instructions to fill up the tires and run its in-car diagnostics.

This happened on a Friday morning, and for the rest of the weekend the tires were fine, no more warnings received. I even drove the Mini at freeway speeds on the way to work Monday morning and all was well.

I figured when I found all four tires were low, the problem was more likely to be someone balancing the tires with a faulty gauge than actually being a problem with all four tires at once.

I know not everyone likes run-flats, but if I did have a problem, the Mini owner's manual said I would be able to continue driving for approximately 50 miles at speeds below 50 mph.
