Q: Q: Tires

asked by on

In his May 2016 inspection report, the YourMechanic mechanic states that all 4 of my tires are in excellent condition. The tread on all 4 is obviously great BUT all 4 tires are just not holding air for longer than a couple days! I admit the tires are old, but I don't drive more than 50-100 miles in a year and my car is stored in a garage. There are no obvious signs of puncture, cracks, etc. So what's going on with these tires?

My car has 48000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
