A puncture is not the only cause of a tire’s going flat.
You were headed to Riverfest when the tire pressure light on your dashboard flashed on. Your initial reaction was “oh, not again” because your tires have been going flat quite a lot lately. You’ve checked your tires for punctures, nails and such but haven’t found any. Now you’re wondering what could be causing them to lose air.
“Most tires keep losing air due to several reasons: loose valve stems, maybe a sharp object or nail puncture the tire, a corroded wheel or rocks causing a bead leak on the side of the wheel, or even a poor tire damage repair can let the air escape your tire. Slow tire leaks are common, and that is why you should know all the reasons why this is happening to your tire,” youramazingcar.com says.
Youramazingcar.com offers these possible causes for a tire to lose air: loose or poor valve stems, damaged or bent wheel, damage to the tire bead, hole or crack in the sidewall, bad repair job, or missing valve cap.
“Tires can leak air for many reasons. Nails, screw nails, glass, road hazards, hitting potholes or curbs, malfunctioning valve stem, and even corroded rims. Check your tire pressure often and top up to the recommended levels for your vehicle,” youramazingcar.com adds. “If a tire keeps losing pressure, have it repaired immediately to avoid damaging the tire further. Regular car maintenance should include checking tire pressures, oil change, and filter change.”
