Question about 2006 Nissan Maxima
Just installed new Rt rear tire at American Tire Co. about a month ago, now it's been losing air pressure slowyly. I don't know why, and I didn't buy the warranty on the tire. Can I still get it fixed or replaced at the tire shop?
Yes they should be able to sort it out for you.
Chances are it is not sealing on your rim,
Take it back to them, they will deflate it, paint a compound on the rim areas, then re-inflate it.
If you remove the tyre yourself, and immerse it in water up over the rim, you can mark the area if it bubbles.
You can self-fix by using impact adhesive on the rim - when tyre is fully deflated on this area.
Tyre rubber compounds are soft in this area and should conform to seal within a month or so, but sometimes don't make it.
The other reason is that rust or a crack may be evident.
If this provides a solution, Please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.
