Garage Floor


I'm having a problem with the air seeping out of my tires (weekly). I was told it is because of my concrete garage floor and the cold. If this is true, what do I need to put on my garage floor to keep this from happing and for protection?

Thank you

is it all of your tires? i've never heard of this before. tires sit on/in subzero weather outside and inside on concrete all the time and don't leak. if it's just one or even two, go have the beads cleaned and reset the tire(s). i ended up telling the wife to stop taking her tire problems to a chain here and use the local guys i've always used. no problems since.

Proper inflation of your tires is essential during the cold winter months. The cooler temperatures can cause the air in your vehicle’s tires to contract and thus make your tire pressure fluctuate. Maintaining proper air pressure in your tires during the cool winter weather will allow you to have good traction and handling no matter the temperature. I am not sure what you can do to your garage floor that would help with air temperature. Insulating your garage would help prevent extreme temperature fluctuations. For protection of the floor, epoxy primer and then 2 coats of concrete paint will help keep dust, down, protect the floor from oil etc, and give your garage a clean look.

the concrete floors or pavement it does not matter. from what your telling me the tire was not properly installed and the bead did not form completely.

In older cars the wheels gets corroded at the joins and hence when new tires are put on one needs to clean them good to remove the oxidized metal before spraying the beading binder spray. the bead will not form between the rubber and oxidized metal .

try this make a soapy water and spray on the bead and you will see that the joints are leaking [bubbles] , then go back to the place and raise hell and ask them clean and reinstall.
