Loosing tyre pressure
« on: March 02, 2012, 06:56:51 PM »
After neglecting the pressure for a few weeks only to discover that I've lost 8-9psi on each wheel I've started to monitor the them more closely. I kept blaming the cold weather but it fairly warm now and I still loose 1-2 psi a week on both wheels. That would certainly explain my handling issue I had over the winter. I've inspected the tyres and valves and couldn't find any obvious defects. I'm intrigued by the fact that both tyres loose pressure at the same rate (I've taken into account that a small amount of air will escape every time I read the pressure).

Did you have any similar experiences?

I think in my case was mainly due to the cold weather and the OE tyres that don't seem to behave too well at low temperatures. During the last couple of weeks the pressure has been very stable with no significant losses.

Hi,

in the cold days I lost more air in my tyres.During the last 3-4 weeks only a minimum.
You can try some tyre-gas (hopefully you know what I mean).Then you will loose almost nothing the whole season.
