View Full Version : Flat tire

Have a question about tires going flat..The last time I drove my car was on friday afternoon to drop my daughter off and came home straight, ..car seemed fine..then on saturday evening, about to go out, found one of my back tire was completely flat..took the flat tire to the shop, they checked it out and found no holes or anything wrong with the tire or the rim..The guy said that someone probably let the air out of my tire. On thursday was the day where I had gone out and parked my car in a mall...So, I'm wondering how long does it actually take a tire to go really flat if someone took the air out? Would like to know if someone could have done this on thursday in the mall, or sometime between friday afternoon to saturday evening at my apartment.....Any ideas?

If no holes, & no prob with the rim, then it must be the valve.
Either it's leaking or somebody trying to be funny.

To completely deflate a passenger car tyre, someone might need to depress the valve for a full 2-3 mins.

OR one can just put a small stone on the top & screw in the cap. The air is release slowly.
