In Reply to: 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 posted by Chet on March 12, 1999 at 19:44:44:
Had a similar problem with an '82 T/A with Dunlop D60A2's on factory cast
aluminum rims. During the winter, 2 of them consistantly went flat daily.
The shop couldn't find any leaks. Had the slightly corroded rims shaved a
bit, still leaked slowly. Added a can of Stop-Leak to each wheel and ran
it on the freeway for a good half hour. Haven't had a problem since.
Seems that the bead will not properly seal if the rim is a bit corroded.
