Ok, so im not the most knowledgeable person, especially when it comes to tires and the cold...however I do know they flatten up a bit under cold weather. BUT my back right seems overly low and my car makes a thump noise when i first pull away (feels like its my back tire uneven with rest), and i dont have a pressure gauge to check the pressure as of right now, so i went and just put some extra air in to be safe, used the whole 3 mins worth. I then took a weekend trip up to my gf's college in jersey (2:45 up 2:45 back.) No problem with tires the whole time. Its now Wednesday and i went back out after class and saw my back right looking awfully low again. If there was a hole or slit wouldn't it have show by now? Is it normal for one tire to just look lower then another? I know i should check the pressure but i just wanted a quick answer for now.
you've probably got a slow leak dude... get a tire gauge... they're like 75 cents at wal-mart...
bring it in to a local tire repair shop. If you don't want to do that then get a tire pressure gauge and keep track of it. If you have a garage or a place that's warmer than 32 degrees then you could take the tire off and pour warm water/soap mix over the tire and look for bubbling. In your case it'd probably be really tiny bubbles and there would be a lot of them. IMO find out what's going on now before your on the side of the road in the cold putting on your spare
probably a small nail in the tire...had the same thing...tire shop patched it and now im looking for new tires as its a temporary fix...even brand new tires have patches sometimes but i would rather get new ones since the stock conti's suck
Would they charge just to look at it? How much is a patch generally?
