Why Do My Tires Lose Tire Pressure?

When you buy new tires, or a new vehicle, your tires are pumped up and ready to go. However, after a few months of driving around, you might notice that your tire pressure has gone down a bit, or that it fluctuates. Several factors can affect your tire pressure including: temperature changes, holes in the tires, and the unavoidable leaking that happens with any tires.
