Kicking or pushing on the tire with your foot? I looked at a car when I was about 16. Having seen TV where people do it, I thought that's what you were supposed to do while mulling over in your head if you wanted to buy the darn thing. Hey, I WAS 16, but on the other hand, I had also taken mechanics in school. Anyway, having kicked one tire, I heard a clunk. So I put my foot on the tire, and rocked it back and forth pushing with my foot. Well, turns out the clunk was a loose suspension part on the front end. Probably that's why the guy didn't want to let me test drive the car, saying he didn't have it licensed. I didn't buy it obviously.
