Leaky rear wheel?
The rear tire on my 2007 LT has lost air pretty much since new. It was only a couple of pounds a week at first and increased to about 4 psi per week as the tire neared replacement condition. I figured it was the tire or valve stem so I thought the new tire and stem would cure the problem. No such luck. I just checked the new tire after about a week and it has dropped from 48 to 44. My front tire holds air just fine. It will be down 1 psi in a month.
Has anyone else had this problem? I'm suspecting now a porous wheel, as I know this sometimes happens with cast alloy wheels.
