For about the last 6 months, about every 2 weeks my tire pressure monitor would indicate that the right rear tire needs air. I would use a pressure gauge to verify that the pressure was low, and then fill it to the specified pressure. Everything would then be fine for about 2 weeks, when the process would repeat all over again. I took it to the shop but the mechanics were unable to find any slow leaks.
I recently bought 4 new tires, and about 2 weeks later – you guessed it – the pressure in the right rear tire was low again.
My wife believes that she caused the problem by driving on a flat tire about a year ago to take it to the repair shop. I know that driving on flat tire can cause wheel damage, but is there any type of wheel damage that would cause a brand new tire to have a slow leak? Any other ideas (besides a coincidence that the new tire placed on the right rear happened to also have a slow leak)? thanks
