Likely the fluid is still all in there. They should only be filled 70% or so with fluid, the rest being air space. Simply air them up.

Just add air...make sure the valve is at the top.

You might want to take the wheels off and weigh them, just so you will know how full of fluid they are.......Might want to ask the previous owner what he filled them with too.

Yeah, you can do a little research on what different guys fill em with and why once you find out what they are filled with. If you do find out let us know I am sure we can help.

Just make sure the valve stem on the wheel is turned to the top of the rotation. This will keep back flow out of your air hose and also the tire gauge when you check the pressure.

good luck,

Jack
