Hello!

Is your car equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system? If so, has the warning light been on recently?

it's a kia dude and my question is answered for me already.......yeah i'm f**ked anyway stuck for a tow and a tire maybe a rim too and whatever genius way this happened it doesn't matter that it's not my fault i've got the bill. waaaaaahhh. oh well take it easy

 

Auto Mechanic: Steve, Auto Service Technician replied 8 years ago

According to my service information, your model year Kia should be equipped with TPMS, which would help to determine exactly where (if anywhere) the additional air was added to your tire, so that you could determine which one of these businesses was being dishonest.

Since you say you have already gotten an answer to your question and intend to pay the bill yourself, i am not sure how I can help you, so I have opted out of your question...
