If your new tires were set at 35 psi and after sitting 6 hours they dropped to 29 psi is this normal?

Yes the air pressure will increase when the tire warms from use, you should inflate it to manufacturers specs written either on the tire or on your car door when "cold" ( driving a mile or so to the gas station is fine), any increase from heat has already been taken into account by the manufacturer. And no, if there was not a significant change in temperature outside, 6psi. is a substantial amount to have dropped. There have been some recent recalls on valve cores and valve stems for such reasons. So check with the tire shop that put them on to see if they have had any problems. and only use the manufacturers specs of pressure on your car. the specs on the tires are the max pressure of that particular tire. not of your car. always go with what the owners manual recommends.

Bias ply tires get a flat spot from sitting but I have yet to see a radial tire do that.

Bikes styles all have different tires to suit terrain. There are road racing tires, cruising tires, off-road tires and many different wheel sizes too.

There are many uses for nankang tires. Nankang tires are similar to normal tires because they both serve the same purpose, to allow a car with wheels to drive.

Flat tires is a sign of physical change. The tires go from being normal, to then being flat. This changes their physical form.

Nitrogen mixed with normal air

If the tpms light in your jeep patriot is on, it means that the pressure in your tires has dropped too low. To reset the light, you simply have to inflate your tires to the right amount of pressure.

Many industrial supply companies will sell you compressed tanks of dry nitrogen that would be suitable for tires. For normal auto tires, regular air is fine, but nitrogen is often used to inflate the tires of race cars and airplanes.

BF Goodrich tires has an excellent warranty policy. They will cover any defects for up to the normal tread wear on the tire or up to six years on all their tires.

Every 5000 to 7000 miles. normal driving conditions 5 to 7 rotations for the life of the tires.

Like with any product, depends on the tire and manufacturer. They are much better than normal tires in icy conditions.

It depends on the type of tires you want & the place you are getting them done. They are pretty expensive though. 4 tires on a big truck with normal non expensive tires but just because they are big is $712.

Formula 1 cars use tires called slicks. Likewise, Drag racing cars use slicks, and NASCAR uses slicks as well, the tires are just of different sizes. The difference between slicks and normal tires is vast. Slicks are soft rubber tires, with no tread. At first, this can be dangerous, as your tires have no traction, or they are "Slick". However after a few laps around the track, or after a long burnout (Drag racing) the slicks heat up, and become sticky, they stick to the track in hot conditions far better than conventional tires. Slicks stay warm all race long after that. Conventional tires are composed of many different layers of rubber and metal mesh, these layers are considered a "ply". If you have a truck with 8 ply tires, they have 8 layers of rubber and metal mesh in the tread. The higher ply, the better for hauling a load. The issue with using normal tires for racing is: One, normal tread tires are designed to grip the road to a point, but they will easily lose traction under a lot of power, especially with the amount of torque and horsepower a race car puts out. Two, normal tires aren't meant for high speeds. Slicks are meant for high speed, based on the speed rating. So at high speeds, normal tires can disintegrate.

Yes. They are not as good as dedicated snow tires-- which are designed with compounds that grip better in low temperature conditions. But, they do grip better in snowy conditions than normal tires.

The gasoline is probably stale and the tires are probaly soft and the battery may be dead.

No. Modern tires can stand a year, maybe even two. I have always trusted toyo last for ever and are very quiet , nokian, and michlin tire

No, Yokohama has manufacturing plants in both the US and Japan. Unless you are importing them they would have been manufactured in the US. Also, weather only really effects snow tires and other specialized tires. Snow tires will wear out quicker in warm temperatures because they have more rubber in them than normal tires.

Could be a front wheel bearing, or worn tires, could be normal?

No, not as long as normal wear pattern on the old ones.
