    Please don't use text-speak, do use capital letters where appropriate, and respect spaces between words and after punctuation marks.
    She was saying that she wouldn't let down the tyres on his car in revenge.

    In case you are still not clear on "let down" in this context, it means to allow the air to escape. To deflate the tyres.

    Well, I thought there might be implications of her words, and I know the phrase means to deflate the car's tyres.
