Checked the tire pressure this afternoon as a pre-ride check after bringing the LTD out of winter storage from the garage.

I was surprised to see approx. 20 lbs. in the front and 18 lbs. in the rear. The rear is a new Dunlop E3 last fall with about 150 miles on it. Haven't seen tires drop that much pressure over a winter before.
They are now at 40 Front 44 Rear. Has anyone seen that much pressure drop before over a winter,seems unusal to me.

Needless to say I'll be keeping an eye on the tire pressures.

Hi bstar, I had just the opposite situation. I have my bike stored in the garage (not heated) and just checked the pressures. Each tire was down approx. 2 pounds. I took it for granted it was because it was such a mild winter.

They will go down over a period of time and the cold weather will have an affect on them also, you did say you only had 150 miles on them when you put the bike away, the shop that installed them might not of cleaned the rim real good where the bead sits. Keep an eye on them.
