Re: Car tyre keeps losing pressure

If it’s an alloy probably needs a refurb. Try East Lancs Alloys on facebook though I’ve not used them myself. I had. mine done in Manchester a few years ago, bead blasted and re powder coated. Looked mint, but a real pain taking wheels off, another car to drive there, leave them 3 days, then collect.
