Tire leak

I noticed that my left rear tire has been leaking air at about 1psi per day. Is there a way to get the tire fixed instead of having to buy a whole new tire? How much would it cost to fix this? Any advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You have a nail or semething like that in your tire. It cost 5-15$, depending on the shop, to fix!

I work at a tire shop and I can bet it's a rim leak. I suggest take it to a tire shop to have it sealed. My dad's car used to leak air like crazy but after I sealed the tires, it never leaked again. Go to discount tires or something and ask them to inspect your tires, it's not very expensive at all.

you can go to american tire depot i believe its called and they charge you around 15-25 and its a warranty you can also use the slip they give you next time when you want to purchase new tires and it will go towards that and you can always plug it yourself just fill it with air get a tub of watere and find the hole thumbsup
