    My passenger side rear tire has a slow leak. No sign of a nail or screw in the tire. It loses about 6 to 7 lbs of air per week. I got the summer grade Pirellis. Anyone else have any similar problems?

    None here, have you dipped that tire in water bin to check for bubble air leaks?

    Might even be a bad valve stem.

    I will check it with some soapy water and look for bubbles. Thanks guys. Good excuse to get bigger tires for the rear.

    Fond the SOB! It was a screw jammed way up into the tire on the outer edge of the tire. Have to replace the tire. Did not have the tire insurance so $543 for a new tire.

    Careful there are different versions of this tire out there. The ones that are half price noted above are the lower speed rated, harder compund ones. Not at all the same.

    Thats what the factory tires cost unfortunately. DRs are great but will only last half as long, so double that cost. Yes, I'm complaining. ;)
