Well this is one thing that i am getting increasingly p****d off with!!
Sometimes both my rear and front offside Tyres seem to be almost flat, so i pump them up again and in aday or so or sometimes a week or maybe even a month theyre down again.i have been to My local tyre specialist every time who tell me its the wheels. As everyone will im sure tell me the quality of the finish on the wheels is naff, therefore on the lip where the tyre wall goes corrosion, wear or dirt can accumilate there causing the wall to slip, thus making the tyre defate.
Apart from getting the wheels, stripped, cleaned, repaired,primered and top painted again, is there anything that anyone can suggest to solve this most annoying problem

Some tyre places fill the tyre with Nitrogen I think, this is also said to improve MPG and reduce the chances of a blow out and some other stuff I cant remember. Think its quite cheap to get done and most places offer this service, could well be worth trying on the worst two tyres and see if any difference (that's if there is not some b*****it reason that you have to have four done as its dangerous if you don't blah blah blah.)If you get this done let us know how you get on Brother Note owner!
Looking at the prices on the net don't think it will be any more than a couple of quid a tyre and the molecules are said to be bigger than air and aircraft are said to have Nitrogen filled tyres, do some research though first because there are some doubters out there as to if this works or not.

The only solution is to knock the tyre off the rim, clean the rims with wire brush & emery cloth, phosphate prime (you'll be lucky
) laquer, allow to dry and refit tyre.

There is nothing on earth that you can squirt into the tyre (except about a quart of paint per wheel) that will fix it I'm afraid.
