tire leaks

one of my tires is always 4-5 PSI lower than the other three tires. I would pump the tire back to 42 but a few days later that tire's pressure would drop back down. Is this something that I can take it back to Tesla' repair shop for service or I need to go to a tire shop ?

  • Had the same issue when I first got my model 3. I took it back to Tesla to get it fixed. They said it was a puncture in the tire and repaired it for ~$100. However, this did not fix the issue. Basically had the same problem till I replaced my tires. The person at the tire shop told me that it was likely the seal around the tire pressure sensor was leaking. Since the tires were replaced, I have not had the problem. It may be easier to take it to a tire shop and have them check both the tread and the tire pressure sensor for leaks.

    if you got the tires from a tire shop then they are responsible. if they are the original tires then tesla is responsible. likely a mounting deficiency..........once they get leaky its hard to fix. will likely need to be remounted properly or replaced entirely if it won't seal

    ...and every single auto manufacturer will turn the issue over to the manufacturer of the tire. UNLESS, it's a TPMS leaking.
  • true.....they're not made by tesla so not really their fault
