How Do My Tires Lose Air Pressure?

Tires are manufactured with the idea of replacement in mind. Tire manufacturers realize that no tire will last forever. Tires are created from a blend of natural and synthetic materials to absorb small impacts that occur naturally on the road. They are placed on a metal rim, sealed as well as possible and sent down the road.

No one has yet created a shock-absorbing material that does not breathe. The nature of the rubber/synthetic tire allows the passage of one-two pounds of air-pressure through the material every month. The leak process accelerates when harsh hits occur, such as potholes, due to an increase in tire air temperature. High temperatures accelerate the already pressure charged air molecules in the tire creating more leakage. Cold temperatures condense the air inside your tire reducing the air-pressure.
