Take it to a tire shop... You probably have a nail or somtin in there!


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

You can try fix-a-flat or that Goop stuff grin ... but check out your tire and rim first for nails and such

Fix a flat is good or take it to a tire place for a patch. My old car had a screw, had it patched and was fine.

fix a flat is a temporary fix IMO. it doesnt really fix ur car unless there is really a small hole to it. take it to any shop and they fix it. 2 ways of fixing it.
1. take the rim off and put some sort of glue or something that covers the hole
2. take the nail out, place a rubber looking thingy in there to stop the leak

they both work, 2 might cost cheaper

Most tire shops, at least where I am, will patch tires for free if it isn't to bad, in wich case you would need a whole new tire anyway.
