I just picked up a 1991 Buick Regal for a good deal, but already the repair costs to get this thing up to speed are mounting :\
Right now I’m dealing with all four tires losing pressure. The 24 year old car still has its original wheels (15 inch aluminum) and I’m assuming that they are losing pressure at the seal. The tires are only about a year old and the stems look okay, so do you think I’m on the right track?
There is one strange part to all of this: The vehicle with its equipped tires is rated at 30 PSI and if I fill them to 30 they are all down about five pounds within a few hours or after a drive. However, they do not lose more than or much more than 5 PSI. The front tires lose more air and lose it faster, but the lowest I’ve seen them is 23. Is only losing a few pounds of air and not going flat evidence of a seal leak or am I in the twilight zone?
