Q: Q: Tire has slow leak

asked by on

The rear left tire has a slow leak.

Hello. If your tire has a slow leak, this is likely due to a small hole being in it. It is very common for people to drive over a nail, screw, or road debris. When the object is stuck in your tire, small amounts of air will slowly leak out around the object. If the object is not in the tire’s sidewall or too close to it, it can be repaired easily. Otherwise it will need to be replaced. This can be done by a certified technician, such as one from your local tire shop where they can align your tires as well.
