Tire went flat. Had it patched. Went flat again. Had it re-patched. It went flat again. Bought a brand new tire. Month later, flat.

Problem in the rim? I'm assuming tubeless tires.

If auto, what kind of patch was it? Plug? or an actual 'patch'?

Toyota Camry. Not sure what kind of patch it was. Either way, the new tire just went flat as well now, so I doubt this has anything to do with the patch.

Defect or issue with the rim preventing a "bead" from forming. That or a busted valve stem from too many "curb checks". Also could be a pain in the ass kid letting air out of people's tires.

Dammit. While the other car is still in the shop having the engine rebuilt, now this. And we carpool and both have 100 mile commutes.

I really, REALLY hate cars. They are nothing but big money pits.

Bad valve stem? (I'm guessing you had it replaced when you got the new tire, but maybe not.)

Most problems can be solved with either a stiff drink, a bowel movement, or a bullet.

Either the stem (which any tire place worth a damn would have checked and replaced when the tire was patched) or more likely the rim. Take it to the tire shop and have them install a tube, cheaper than a new rim. They will begin by telling you they can't tube a tubeless tire and try to sell you a new tire and/or rim, because they will make more money that way. Insist that they just install a tube, which I assure you they do have sitting on the shelf in the back. Tube should run between $20-$30.

I really did not know you can put a tube in a car tire. I learned something new!

I had this same thing happen to me once. The rim was bent and the tire didn't bead on it properly. The result was a slow leak that got quicker whenever I hit a big pothole.

Screw NJ's roads.
