Hey i just took off my snow tire and put back on my normal tires. Only i have a problem with the front left tire. When i unscrew tyhe valve cap air leaks out untill the cap is completely off. And the PSI keeps going down. Im lossing air!! i filled it up to 34 psi on sat. and today its down to 29 psi. I checked but i did not see any leaks or nails or screws in the tire so I suspect there is something the matter with the tire valve itself. Any help would be appreaciated.
THanks

Don't know if this is at all relevant to your situation, but I once had a flat tire caused by salt buildup around the rim. They just cleaned it up and refilled it and it was fine.

Or maybe you're going to need to invest in a new tire.

good luck.

hello,

just bring it to a tires place, there was one time that my tire on my old 626 had a tear in it where the tire met the wheel. Rust buildup too can cause this. You might have a slow leak, nail, or possibly the tires might dry rotted there letting the air seep through the sidewall.
