Tyre pressure warning

Cold temperature is really ambient temperature because in use they warm up and the pressure increases, how hard you drive, how fast, how long etc all increase the temperature by a different amount. There gets a point there they don’t increase any more but that could still be +2 up on a leisurely 4 mile drive to +7psi if you're caning it for an hour across country. This is all normal and factored into the pressure they want you to set.

Over pressure when cold is also bad, tyres will become even more over inflated in use and either get bouncy and/or wear oddly.

There’s nothing magical here really, on a periodic basis check the pressures and adjust, below 40 and I’d def be adding air, don’t wait for the puncture/flat tyre sensor to tell you, tyres are the only thing sticking you to the road
