Ok, I bought my car back in October and ever since then i have had terrible tire troubles. Every single tire on the car loses air over a period of time and my drivers side rear I have to put air in every other day cuz it drops from 35 psi to 10-15 in a couple days. I 've had three different shops looks at my car and they took the tires off and did the sealant thing around the tire and rim. I'm so frustrated cuz my check tire pressure light comes on WAY to often. I'm am running 235/50/17 so plenty of tire there. So any help would be awesome. I just wish my tires would all keep the same pressure. Thanks
My friend'* 2000 with the swoopies had a similar problem. A couple had bad valve stems, and the others were leaking at the rims. Some shops are lazy and don't clean the crud off from the rims before applying the sealer. Took 3 times before they finally got it right and that was after the f'd up one of the rims and had to supply a new one.
Another very likely cause: chrome rims are prone to chipping along the bead.. once the chrome gets chipped, water and air gets between the chrome and the rim material causing ALOT of oxydization, blistering and peeling alond the bead seat. Sometimes this can be a real pain in the *** and require quite alot of sealer, and a wirewheel to get a good seal.
