Can you fix a slow leak in a tire?
The repair method for a slow leak depends on where the leak is located and how advanced the damage is. For example, a leak in the tread of the tire may completely disappear when patched by a mechanic. However, a leak caused by a bent wheel may require that both the wheel and the tire be replaced.
Why do tires leak slowly?
Valve stems deteriorate and leak air due to the exposure to lots of chemicals on the road. Usually, drivers get a new set along with the new tires. However, if a tire loses air slowly yet over 1-3 psi a month, they may need replacement earlier. Over-tightening valve cores may also be one of the reasons of the leak.
