Thread: Tyres poping of the rim WHY

    Tyres poping of the rim WHY

    Hi All
    I have a hilux with alloys and some times when I have been off road.
    I awake the next day to find the one of the tyres flat as a witches tit.
    Why could this be is it because of the alloys ?

    alloy corrosion
    very common

    pump it up and run a weak soapy solution round the rim (easier off the vehicle when flat)
    you will probably see the soap foaming where it is seeping past the seal

    This fixes it.

    Most tyre fitting places have it.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    "HOSPITALITY" - the art of making guests feel at home (when you wish they were).

    If it is corroded rims you could put tubes in. We have done this with our old Dihatsue. I think there is a technical reason why you shouldn't and some tyre fitting places won't do it but it works for us.

    could it be mud getting wedge between the rim an tyre, ive had trouble with this a few times, I was running larger offset, and find my tyres rubbing hard against the ruts causing the mud to wedge in,
