Re: Re: heres what happened... I'm park my car for an hour and come back and the tire is flat. So I go tothe tire place with it and they can't find a leak. So I drive it around for a month and one day I park it again and the tire goes flat. So, I take it in again and again they can't find a leak but remove a weight andadd the stick on kind because maybe that could be the cause. So, a month later it goes flat again. What is going on!!!!! n/m

I suspect the problem is the tire or the rim. So swap them with another set;
i.e. put the tire from the bad set onto another rim, and put the remaining two
pieces together. This is the "process of elimination" approach.

You may be "breaking the bead" by running into curbs or what have you.

Another problem may be rust on the rim. A wire brushing is sometimes
good in this case.

Last resort is to fit a tube. While the dealer may grumble, this is
a fine solution to get service from your tires & wheels.
