    So I left ASU this evening to go to my truck around 8 to find both my driver side tires completely flat!:eek: At fist I was like what the hell did I run over! Then I saw my valve cores sitting next to my tires! DAMN KIDS :mad:!!! and of course a valve core tool is on my list of things to get that I haven't yet gotten around too yet. I have an ARB compressor onboard so I had my friend drive me to the nearest Autozone where I picked up a Slime brand tire kit for $4.99 which included the tool, 4 valve cores, extra, caps and a crappy little pressure gauge in a nice little box. Back to the truck and about 20 min later I was good to go (did I mention I love my ARB OBA!?)! I started to leave and and saw another kid sitting in his Land Rover with three flat tires so I got out and fixed him up.. started to leave again and saw two people getting towed out with flats with just their fronts lifted and the rear tires were flat!!! I may be wrong but I'm assuming that ruins you tires?? So I stopped the tow trucks and was like are you really going to tow them like that?? why don't you just put back in the valve cores! Of course the tow trucks didn't have the the $1.99 tool to put the cores back and only one had a compressor... thanks a lot AAA... so i fixed both of them up and sent the tow trucks on their way..

    Anyways this rant was to show my great appreciation for my ARB compressor (Which everyone should buy, I can't tell you how many times it's come in handy just in the last year even off the trails) which may be small but inflated 9 tires within the hour and a half this all took without skipping a beat. Also @^&# tow truck companies who were going to charge these guy who knows how much money because they want to rip people off n not carry a $2 tool that seems should be carried by someone dealing with flats?? Also #&*# the punkass kids who thought this would be funny.. like I don't have anything better to do the week before finals :mad:.

    I decided to file a police report and the woman said that at least ten others had reported their tires being deflated and none of the three that I help reported it so who knows how many they got!


    The End

    The compressor alone is about $250 and the install isn't to hard if your ok with doing some wiring.


    they took all my caps too :(

    Oh man that sucks! I've heard a lot people get broken into in that lot and a lot of catalytic converters get stolen.. I'm in the 10th St Garage by the design buildings. I figure it might be a little safer but who knows :rolleyes:.

    Exactly!! I don't want to support the illegals, and either do the people of Arizona and now Texas which is proposing the same law. Time to go!

    Nice!!! But on the good side at least they only removed the valve instead of slicing the tire.

    True! I am very happy about that.. I heard they slashed the tires on a Mustang that night but the rest they just removed the cores.


    And for those of you that requested pics here you go... :D
