Indeed.  I added about 10# to my mom's tires, 5# to mine.

I have a dodgy rim on my '96 Accord, need to add every couple of weeks.

My wife's car had a flat front this morning... re-inflated & when I got to the shop they said the bead was dirty/corroded. They cleaned it and all set now. Loss of pressure finally let a slow leak happen overnight.

Wish this post had happened yesterday...  :)

My girlfriend's mom had new tires put on at the Honda dealer and they all went flat over the next several days. I guess they didn't clean up the rim.

I took out my trailer for a gig a few weeks ago after reading this thread. Before I left I checked the tires and they all wanted about 20#. Thanks for the reminder.

The heck with it, I just bought a new vehicle.

Okay, the old Honda Odyssey finally ran true to form and developed transmission problems, but it had 154k on it, so I had real reservations about dumping large amounts of money into repairing it(needed a timing belt too, and would have needed new struts and rear brakes next year).

I decided to go back to a pickup truck.  Looking into caps and/or Line-X right now.

Tire pressure is good though.  ;)

Best regards,

John

A few weeks back I lost all pressure in a leaky rear tire of a 26' enterprise, fully loaded with PA, at highway speed. The load (arguably overload) then blewout the inner tire and we damn near spilled vertec and my A2 all over the road in a rollover.
 
It would have been a shame to lose the vertec  :)

We lost both passenger side duals on a 24'.  We weren't over weight for either the truck or tires, but it was 112 out.

My observation has been that we lose the inside dual most of the time because it's the most difficult to check or inflate... damn near impossible to get a tire chuck on the stem.
