2007 Kia Rondo: Low tire pressures

July 28, 2008


We took the Rondo to Stokes Tire Pros in Santa Monica to figure out what was going on with our tire pressures. We got some funky readings:

Left front: 10 psi
Right front: 25 psi
Left rear: 26 psi
Right rear: 11 psi
Recommended: 32 psi

A nail was the culprit in the right rear, which the guys at Stokes patched. At our request, they also did a thorough examination of the front left tire that was reporting 10 psi. They pulled it off, inspected it, replaced the valve stem core, cleaned the wheel bead and the rebalanced it. No other leaks were found. All four tires are now up to the recommended pressure.

Total cost: $42.50
