If tires have sat flat for a while and you have a pump, please pump to psi written on side of tire if you have pump with a gauge or until rock solid when leaning heel of hand and upper body weight into tire. as sometimes slow leaks can be hard to identify and hate to leave any fix unfixed after I’ve left! Thus better they’re found before I arrive!
