I have never seen anything which contains petrol in a tyre or wheel. Are you sure that you do not have a leaking brake component, such as a slave cylinder or caliper, at that wheel? Check your master cylinder. Failing that check the route of your fuel line, I would suspect some type of rupture, given today's fuel line pressures it could be spraying from anywhere onto the tyre.

I drive a 2009 Mazda bt50 single cab tray back ute. The recommended unladen tyre pressures are 32 front and 30 rear but continually have approx 240 kilograms loaded in the tray. What pressures should


you should be running 8 ply tyres on the vehicle to carry the maximum load as required by the regulator
The recommended tyre pressure will be on a decal attached to the drivers door ( probably on the door frame under the latch)
Having said all that I recommend 45 psi for the rear and 40 for the front
If you run any less ,the ride will be smoother but if you load the vehicle, the rear tyres are under inflated and prone to failure from overheating
tyres are manufactured to run at a certain pressure due to the construction of the case. Talk to a tyre shop as to the pressure you should be using for the tyres.

Rear passenger tire smoking and very hot


smoking tyres ( unless you are doing burn outs) run very hot and smoke because they have been running flat or well underinflated . This over heats the tyre and the inside breaks down and then tyre is ruined and has to be replaced.. Have the tyre shop check for puncture material.

What should the tyre pressure be for a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 SXI 2008


There should be a sticker on the door or door surround when you open the front doors. Pressure should be on there though likely to be in bar, ie 1.2 bar, or kpascals. they seem to have dropped psi but 30 psi / 1.2 bar is near enough for a reinflate. If it goes down you have a puncture and will need to visit a tyre shop.

My 2005 dodge neon right rear wheel is wobbling a little and is visable when driven


Check wheel bearings are not failing or loose. Check that the tyre has been fitted correctly to the rim. There may be a ridge in the tyre just out from the rim edge . Check to see that this is evenly spaced around the rim. Check inside also . This is a guide to see that the tyre is evenly placed on the rim and is not held up on the bead. It causes wobble and because the tyre is not fitted correctly will not have an effective seal between the bead and the rim hence loosing air. Have a tyre shop check

I want to complaint about the hyundai dealer. how can i do it. I got my hyundai accent 2006 model serviced from hyundai service centre. the mileage at the time of service was a little less than 20,000 kms....


are you sure they didnt change fronts to rear so that you would have the safest tyres on the front???
From my experience,working for hyundai, you would be lucky to get 25/30k from a pair of fronts and about 50 from the rears......
also, as tyres are relatively cheap, why would they swap for a pair of old,worn tyres,dont make sense...... (its easier to go to a parking lot at night and steal all four from a new car........)

Run flat tyre warning light is on i have checked tyre pressure


This will only come on when a tyre has dropped in pressure (not spare). It work on the principle that a tyre with less air has a smaller rolling circumference and therefore a different wheel speed. This is then monitored against other signals from other wheels and determined that a loss in pressure has occured.

If all tyre pressures seem ok, there could be a chance of a small unoticeable leak and would require a bath test. This is when the tyre is dipped in water and bubbles would appear where the puncture is.

Ultimately the system may just need to be reset, or has incorrectly been reset from a tyre change. For this you just press and hold the TPC button (located on the centre console above the gearstick - looks like a flat tyre with an exclamation) turn on the ignition to position 2 and the light will come on re then yellow,go out, come back on yellow. When it comes back on yellow it re-initializing the system. You can let go of the button and after 20 odd seconds the light will go out for the final time, completing the reset.

If the light continues to come on after the reset then you definitely have a puncture somewhere!

Hope this helps!

Replacing continental tires with general ameri gs60


Yes, its all about wear rates and actual tyre sizes, wheel speeds etc. If one tyre is 2 mm smaller than another this one will turn faster than the rest causing, abs faults, traction control faults and transfer gear faults. Always change all four together and rotate the wheels to keep even tyre wear. I know this can be expensive but the transfer case and transmission are a far greater expense.

Tyre wear


ok have you checked that the tyre pressure is the same on all four wheels or it could be that the rear axel is not being lubricated properly check the bushing.
