A flat tire can be caused by many things, the most common is an incorrect tire pressure. Tire manufacturers have a suggested tire pressure level for a smooth ride. Go slightly above and you are in for one bumpy ride. Bouncy tires have a tendency to have weaker traction, this increases your chance of hitting an obstacle on the road. You then run a higher risk of puncturing your tires. If your tire pressure is too low on the other hand, more of your tire’s surface touches the road. This causes an increase in friction that can overheat your tires and cause a blowout.
A damaged, leaky valve stem can also be the culprit. The valve stem is the small tube in where the tire gets inflated, if this is damaged, cracked or is missing the small cap, it can cause the air in your tires to leak out. Lastly, it is quite possible that your tires have reached the limit to their lifespan. Ideally, tires should be changed every 3-5 years depending on the road conditions and frequency of usage. Worn our tires have more tendency to leak out air or experience a blowout.
