Yesterday morning, just as I’m arriving downtown for work, I get a call from my fiance saying she has a flat tire. I jump in a Lyft and head her way to discover that she wasn’t lying, the tire is flat. Mind you these are brand new tires, only a couple weeks old.

Since I had an air compressor in the trunk I decided to see if it would take any air. Sure enough, I was able to fill it to 40 psi without issue and there were no obvious leaks and no debris sticking out of the tread. I drove it back home and parked it, fully expecting to come home to a flat tire again.

Well it held air all day, and all last night like nothing happened. I’m so perplexed, I’ve never heard of a tire going completely flat without some obvious issue.

I need to bring the car in for an alignment anyway, but I don’t even know what to tell them about the tire. Its the weirdest thing. She said she was driving and all of the sudden she was on the rim. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
