    tyre Squeal

    right just got back from tyre place. apparently it was the rim of the tyre,the tyre wasnt seating roperly and leaking air so would explain the squealing causing the tyre to go flat . they cleaned all around the rim of wheel re balanced the wheel and new valve so all ok now £15

    tyre Squeal

    i dont spin the wheels like that im 61 so not my thing never has been to be honest .its just some times if i pull off slightly fast the drivers lets out a squeal i think the tyres made out of pig skin lol i did check valve core seamed ok maybe ill pop in and get it checked .i did a pressure test and an hour later was the same and that tyre looks awful never had one like that

    tyre Squeal

    right i went out jacked car up turned the wheel outwards so i could check it spun the wheel in a circle no nails or screws or anythng.i got a spray bottle with a strong mix of washing up liquid and turned the wheel while spraying done the beads and sides of tyre and the top and no bubbles .i know it not as good as a bath but couldnt be bothered taking it off as ive got arthritus and takes a lot for me to do .any way im baffled the pressure is still ok so will see how it goes will try not to squeel the tyre . also checked the valve seat and all

    tyre Squeal

    tyre Squeal

    ive had a couple of times that my tyre has gone down. i come out to the car to see the drivers front is down so i pump it up and carry on but in the back of my mind is if ive got a puncture. but over the next two weeks it stays up but today i was out and i pulled of a bit sharpish and the front wheel squealed and when i stop at a shop and the tyre is down low again. is it possible that the squaeling is allowing air to come out of the tyre some how ? its always drivrs that squeals
