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:mad:.
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

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,

we get this with farm machinery quite a lot when runing in heavy mad or bad ruts, tyre is take off the rim and cleaned solves it most of time.

This can be a symptom of mismatched tyre size and rims. ... e.g. when chavs fit over-fat low-profile tyres to original rims, or fandango wheels meant for another vehicle.

Not suggesting this applies in your case of course, but as it's not OE is the tyre size compatible with the rim width? I don't mean the rim diameter.

I suppose that 'dry' 'flat' and 'cold' would describe most witches tits, no wonder they are not popular. I am off to the pup my mouth is as dry as a nuns gusset.
