Have you ever had a tire shop say your tire pressure too low to inflate?

Mom asked me to check her back tire. I grabbed my bike pump and she said she was driving to Big O. They told her that tire was at 15 PSI, but they could not inflate it, because it could explode.

They inflate tires from 0 PSI when they install them, so is this because of a prospective hole? You put high-pressure air into a tire with a hole and it could explode?

It doesn't make any sense to me. I am riding my bike over and bringing my pump!

[They also said her front tires were at 3/16th of an inch. I had her verify and she says they are almost bald. I really think we would have noticed that!]

They did not tell the poor little widow how much the new tires would be...
