It realy would be best to get it up on ramps to find out where the leak is.
Did it start at the same time as the flat tyre - i.e. did you go over something? if so, it may have stressed the steering (if power steering) and caused a seal failure. Or it may be that the sump has recieved a blow, causing the sump pan seal to leak a bit - or even crack.
If the oil is black - it's probably the sump, if lighter in colour, it is probably steering rack fluid or brake fluid.
Check the oil levels to see which one it is. If there is a large leak, or the brake fluid or steering fluid is leaking, the car is best recovered for repair, as driving it is dangerous.
Hope this helps. If it leads to a solution, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thank you.
