Some alloy rims require tubes in the tires. Had that problem with BMW factory wheels some years ago.

It could be since they are the alloy rims they are leaking around the bead. Take them to a local shop. OR you can check yourself. soapy water in a spray bottle. Spray around rim on tire and rim look for forming bubbles. You will notice it will keep bubbling.

Warning light


check the tire pressures..see if any are below 30 psi..in cold weather, they use nitrogen to inflate tires due to its lack of effects from these temperature changes..these new cars will tell you if your tires are either too much pressure or too low.. its a safety feature .. you can put air in them and that light should go out.. try to set them at 32-35 psi..the variance in readings will affect this also by 3-5 psi..in these conditions check once a week or so..remember rubber does not seal entirely on alloy wheels..in some cases where a tire is consistently low, you may need to take it in and have the tire "glued" to the rim..

What size alloys. Ford Calypso 1997


Yes. The last number on a tire size is the diameter of the rim, when it changes so too must the tire. The bigger the tire the more they cost.
You also have to pay attention to the width of the rim, side to side. Somes tires need a wider rim than others, so ask when you are buying the rims what width they need tires to be because wider tires cost more too. Hope this helps.

17in alloys wheels makes strange sound


what design are they, two thing could be doing it, if the obviouse touching has already been investigated, one is the design, if the spokes/hub sits out further than the rim than the outer of the rim they could be catching the wind and making some freaky noises, or if the center dishes in then maybe they are "loud" tyres by that i mean do the tyres have wide grooves, directional etc, high performance tyres are in principle very noisy. hope this has been handy.

Every other week i'm getting flat tyres very unexpectedly. The tyre pressure warning light comes on but instantly the tyre is completely flat. Apparently its due to corrosion of alloy rims, how can i get...


Hi,

A temporary workaround/remedy is to put innertube inside the tire. Even if the alloy rims could not longer provide a good air tight seal, the inner tube would still hold the air. You may need to specify the tire size and width. Additionally, you may want to ask your tireman to likewise install a buffer of some sort between the innertube and the alloy rim. This is to prevent the any sharp portion of the corroded alloy rim puncturing the inner tube. Some local tiremen use a cutoff/old inner tubre as buffer.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
