A truck dilemma

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

how could he drive if there was not enough air in his tires?

If it was a dirt road, he could dig a couple of wheel ruts 1 inch deep under the trestle.

If he had air suspension, he could also let out the air in the suspension. It may be difficult deleting air if you didn't have a pump.

this doesn't belong in the situation section. it should be in logic, or trivia, or possible science.

I'm assuming this guy must either have a compressor with him, or saw a station with one...otherwise it wouldn't be wise of him to let air out of his tires.
