Ive been having trouble with one of my wheels, I hit a pothole and messed up the sidewall so air is leaking at a slow but steady rate, Ive been having to put air in it every week., i fill it to 50 psi on mondy and by next mondy its at 20 psi, Im getting a new tire asap.

I work nights on the weekends, at 11:30 last night I parked my car on the street, my tire is fine. 7:30 this morning I go to my car and the tire is completely empty. I dont know WTF happend cause i just put air in it two days ago.

Anyways luckily I was close to a gas station to I drove the car a block to the gas station and i I filled up the tire with air. I did that this morning and now about 8 hours later the tire still has about 50 psi.

This is pretty strange, I mean if the tire went from being full to empty in 8 hours last night, then It should be flat now but it isnt.

Do you think someone did this to me? If so thats a pretty odd coicencedence for someone to let the air out of a tire Im already having problems with.

It was how you parked the car. If it was leaking from the sidewall and you parked with that part of the tire/rim down it puts extra pressure on it causing it to leak faster.

when you get the tire demounted inspect the wheel very carefully.

It could be that the wheel is cracked as well
